On Saturday, October 21, 2017, several Danvers Girls Scouts with the support of a recently formed Holten Cemetery Association Board, unveiled a new sign at the historic burial grounds at 131 Holten Street.
Walnut Grove Cemetery was established in May of 1843, on 14 acres of land in what was then called "North Danvers". The land was purchased from Judge Samuel Putnam. It was the first cemetery in Danvers to be designed as a memorial park. There are veterans of the Revolutionary War buried here as well as a number of veterans of the 2nd Mass Heavy Artillery and 17th Mass Infantry from the Civil War.
