For subscribers of The Salem News or if you’d like to pick up today’s edition, The House of the Seven Gables’ free Heritage Days activity of 17th Century Lawn Games was featured on the front page! The great photo showed children playing the 400 year old game of frog & squirrel!
Today’s free activity is a demonstration of the ancient art of lace-making! Visitors of all ages are coming in to see the live demonstration and ask questions on this fascinating process:
Just a reminder, too, that during Heritage Days, which run through August 12th, all Salem families (with children under 18) and Salem seniors (over 65) are entitled to a 20% off discount on admission to The Gables.
Aside from the tours and activities here on site, don’t forget your opportunity to peruse our gardens, the Museum Store and breathtaking views of Salem Harbor. Here’s the view from the entrance of the Nathaniel Hawthorne Birth Home at The Gables:
We hope you’ll visit us this summer and again this fall when we feature our special October “Spirits of the Gables” and “Legacy of the Hanging Judge” programs! Don’t forget to reserve your space – we’re already taking reservations and encourage you to reserve well in advance. For reservations, please call us at 978-744-0991 ext. 104.
