The House of the Seven Gables: Gendering Work: Mills, Homes, & Everywhere in the Industrial Era

The House of the Seven Gables Settlement Association was found to preserve the famed Turner-Ingersoll Mansion and to provide support services for newly arriving immigrants in 1910. Salem’s Point Neighborhood has long been one of enclaves for immigrant families. Elizabeth Duclos-Orsello will offer a walking tour of the Point neighborhood focusing on the work in the mills, small neighborhood business, and homes, with a particular focus on the sites of women's work. What has made this neighborhood function through the years? Join us to find out.
