There are many exciting events on the horizon at The House of the Seven Gables. As we approach the season of giving, it is coming upon the time of year when we adorn the annual Gables’ Settlement Tree with ornaments that reflect the various groups The Settlement Association has helped over the past 100 years. These beautiful, handcrafted ornaments were made by Salem school children and will be for sale.
As a special holiday offering, on Saturdays in December prior to Christmas, we will be hosting special musical guests that will be performing in the Visitor’s Center. We will also be offering family friendly ornament making and serving light refreshments. These offerings will be held on December 6th, 13th, and 20th from 2-4PM.
On November 28th, we will begin offering our special Christmas themed tour, to kick off the holiday season. The tour of the mansion explains how our beloved traditions have evolved over time. There is an added bonus this season because on that Saturday, November 29th at 3PM, Ken Turino, of Historic New England, will be giving a lecture here at The Gables about the changing nature of Christmas celebration in New England.
And do not forget that The House of the Seven Gables is not just for weddings. We have unique spaces for your holiday get-togethers, large or small. Please contact Deb Costa, firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information.
