The House of the Seven Gables Settlement Association is taking 2017 to look at life and labor over four centuries at our National Historic Landmark District site. Our stories range from the roles of women in the home to mariners at sea to those that were enslaved to those that supported immigrants in the Derby Street neighborhood.
On April 7, join us for a reception to commemorate the opening of this unique exhibit that will share first hand stories, rarely seen images, and music of the centuries to help tell the stories of work. There will be appetizers and a cash bar.
The event takes place from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.–perfect timing for after work or before a Friday night on the town. This event is free and open to the public. Please RSVP here.
Special thanks to our 2017 exhibit sponsors for their support:
Hawthorne Hotel, Salem Witch Museum, and the Salem Cultural Council as well as:
The Benson Gallery, North Shore Music Theatre, Nelson’s Plumbing and Heating, Merry Fox Realty, The Salem Inn, and Shaeen, Palone, and Company
