Glen Magna Farms

Glen Magna Farms is on the same land as Endicott Park in Danvers, Massachusetts. 
This mansion and its gardens are used for weddings and other gatherings.
Built in the late 1800s, it is full of architectural beauty.
The gardens were still dead when I was there but the summer wedding photos on their website while everything is in bloom are stunning!
The grounds are full of nooks and crannies for amazing photo shoots.
The morbid part of my soul sort of enjoys these dead gardens. This one is a rose garden.
My favorite statue was this one. This dude has quite the expression on his face.
There are a couple of really cool twisted trees.
Columns are always beautiful.
 This is a summer house between 2 gardens.
Of course there is a gazebo. What would a wedding site be without one?
I hope you enjoyed this tour of Glen Magna Farms. It reminds me quite a bit of the Stevens-Coolidge Place in the town I grew up in.

I plan on visiting again during the summer to enjoy its blooms!

Thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful week ahead. ~Val


  1. wow! quite the mansion! i like the summer house better! :) at least the 'dead' gardens are simply resting in this case. :)

  2. It looks stunning, and I was thinking the same thing as TexWisGirl about the summer house! It looks stunning with those windows and wooden shutters. Will you go back again when everything is in bloom?

  3. beautiful! I love that little statue of the guy ... he doesn't really look all that happy? LOL thanks for taking us on the tour!

  4. I can see why it's popular for weddings! What a beautiful location and I simply love that pavilion :)
    It must look stunning when all the roses are in full bloom!
    Happy Sunday!

  5. That statue cracked me up! I wonder what his story is all about?! I know what you mean about dead gardens...there is something so intriguing about the dead, brown, twisted stalks and vines and flowerheads and leaves. I like seeing it that way almost as much as in bloom. What a gorgeous place to spend time no matter the time of year.

  6. I love the combination of classical columns and wild twisted vines! Like the clash of civilization and nature.

  7. What a fun place to get out and take some pictures. I love the twisted trees. Nature does amaze me! You certainly couldn't have asked for a better day. Look at the bright blue sky!

  8. What a wonderful place for a wedding! I like the sight of those twisted tress they are so cool. Yes please visit during the Summer to see it in all its blooming glory!!

  9. Beautiful place!!!!
    Have a good week, dear Val!!!!!:)))

    Besos, desde España, Marcela♥

  10. I don't think the gardens are "dead", Val. They are "dormant" and will soon look amazing again I am sure.
