“Work” with us this weekend at The Gables!

The House of the Seven Gables has been looking at what it was like to work on our historic site over the past four centuries.
This weekend our visitors will be invited to find out first hand!


Join us for our “Life and Labor Weekend” program this Saturday and Sunday. Visitors can learn about sailing the high seas with a variety of family-friendly and hands-on activities. The Family Navigation Game is offered on Saturday and Sunday from 10a.m. – 6 p.m. The Living History Labs’ hands-on history experience will also take place Saturday and Sunday from 10:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. and 2 – 4 p.m.

Other special events include labor- and work-focused tours of The Gables along with family-friendly Living History Labs will put young historians to work detecting and discovering. In addition, unique historical labor demonstrations are scheduled throughout both days. Tin-smithing and horn-carving activities take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Our annual exhibit about work is also on view at The Gables Visitor Center, which is open daily and free to the public.
