Meet the Past: Caroline Emmerton's Gables Tour

  • The House of Seven Gables 115 Derby Street Salem, MA, 01970 United States (map)

The House of the Seven Gables was preserved and opened as a museum in 1910 by Caroline Emmerton. Miss Emmerton used proceeds from visitors to fund a settlement house that offered educational opportunities for newly arriving immigrant families. Join one of our professional guides AND Miss Emmerton (on her birthday!) for an interactive tour of The Gables and learn about why she was inspired by Hawthorne’s works to preserve the mansion.

There will be two tours: 10:30 – 11:30 A.M. and 12:00 – 1:00 P.M. The cost for the general public is $15. The cost for members of The Gables is $10.
