More About Choate Farm Conservation Area
Choate Farm, historically known as Robin Hill Farm, was established as a gentleman's farm in the early 20th century by Robert B. Choate, a member of a prominent local family. The town purchased the land for open space in 2001, and in 2006, Danvers Rotary began to prepare the existing trails for hiking. The area now features a parking lot, picnic tables and benches and a peach orchard. The expanse of woodland trails, picnicking areas and open grasslands is available for public enjoyment, and the trails lead to a hilltop view of the Putnamville Reservoir across Locust Street.
