Over the past few years, The House of the Seven Gables has been creating an annual exhibition to highlight the unique aspects of the organization. You can check out the digital versions of those exhibits here. Click on the exhibit title to view.
In keeping with our Settlement mission, The Gables hosts a series of community dialogues to address topics in immigration and immigration reform. Unlike a traditional lecture, the Community Conversations encourage discussion between the speaker and audience members during the course of the presentation. In 2019, we were one of 32 historic sites in the country granted funding to share the Becoming American series.

At-home learning resources
Are you an accidental home school parent? We’ve been working on some resources with our team and community volunteers for you. Ages vary by activity and interest level.
- Teacher Resources include Hawthorne for High School and the Progressive Era
- Google Expedition based on the Legacy of the Hanging Judge performance (search for Nathaniel Hawthorne)
- Free audio book of The House of the Seven Gables from LibriVox; many other classic tales can be found on this site.
Additional programming is planned with a goal to engage our diverse audience with the National Historic Landmark District historic site. Past events have included first-person interpretive experiences, community days, theatrical and musical experiences, and art events. Lectures outside of the Seven Lectures series that highlight the mission and vision of the organization have been offered by outside scholars and staff with particular areas of expertise.
