The House of the Seven Gables will celebrate Salem Women’s History Day this year, on Sunday, March 29, by offering visitors specialized tours of the Gables mansion. These tours will highlight the role of women, famous and obscure, rich and poor, who have been associated with the history of The House of the Seven Gables.
Of the many extraordinary women who called The Gables home, Susanna Ingersoll lived here the longest, was arguably the richest, and remains the most elusive. At 12:00 p.m. & 2:00 p.m. join us for an engaging talk, as noted scholar Robin Woodman brings to light Susanna Ingersoll and her success in the male dominated real estate market of 19th century Salem.
