Help Support The Renovations To The Children's Barn Through GO FUND ME!

The Friends of Endicott Park  are excited to announce our newest project to support our mission of preservation, conservation, and enhancement of our beautiful resource. Endicott Park.  We are raising funds to support the restoration of the Townley Family Children’s Barn. 

The Friends of Endicott Park’s  current initiative is raising the funds and providing assistance towards the renovation of the Children’s Barn. This unique historical structure is the only known example of this architectural design in New England. It is one of only three buildings left of the farm complex that was once the thriving “gentlemen’s farm” of William C. Endicott, Secretary of War under President Cleveland and a direct descendant of the Massachusetts Governor, John Endicott.

The children’s barn is home to our beloved horse and pony, goats, pigs, rabbits and chickens.  All our animals provide enjoyment and education for the visiting public. The barn provides subject matter for local artists and is a cornerstone in the preservation mission of our organization. This structure may soon provide one of the few remaining opportunities in this area for people of all ages to up close and personal with live farm animals. It’s difficult to quantify the importance of this building.


UPDATE: October 16, 2020


With your help, we have been able to complete the following:

  • All windows replaced

  • New front door and back door

  • New wall in chicken coop

  • New hay barn door

  • Front of barn completely done with new paint

Still undone:

  • Monty's ramp

  • Observation ramp on back of barn--making more accessible for handicapped as well

  • New doors at Monty's ramp, chicken coop on back and other end of barn

  • Remaining siding

  • Paint remainder of building

With the help of the community, we have made amazing progress and we need your help to complete the project. With friends like you, we know it will happen!  Please consider a charitable contribution toward our efforts.


If you prefer to mail a check you can send to the Friends of Endicott Park at 57 Forest Street Danvers, MA 01923 (put "barn" in the memo line).

Thank you from the Friends of Endicott Park!
