365 Days of Danvers: 18

Porphyry Hall

St Johns Preparatory School
Spring Street,  Danvers, MA


Built in 1880 by Jacob Spring, Porphyry Hall now serves as the Administration Building. The Xaverian Brothers purchased the Spring estate in 1891 and established St. John's Normal College the same year. The school shifted its mission to the secondary level and St. John's Prep opened on September 10, 1907.
