Salem Women’s History Day at The Gables
On Sunday, March 24, The Gables will celebrate Salem Women’s History Day. At The Gables, our talented guides will share a revamped guided tour that focuses on the history and role of women at The Gables. This special women-centered tour is offered at 12:30p.m. and 3:30p.m.
We are delighted to welcome Dina Vargo to The Gables to talk about her new novel, The Hidden History of Boston. According to her bio, Dina has been a “lover of history and tricorn hats since dressing up as Betsy Ross for our nation’s bicentennial celebration.” After moving to the Boston area, she became a docent for Boston By Foot, where she developed a penchant for writing off-beat, “hidden history” walking tours. Her lecture focuses on some of the more extraordinary stories from her book as well as some lesser-known stories about women in and around Boston. The lecture begins at 2:00p.m., followed by a book signing in our Museum Store.
Events at The Gables are free for members and Salem residents. Regular admission for the general public includes a tour and admission to the lecture. Space is limited for all events. For more information email jarrison@7Gables.org or call 978-306-7003. Register Today>>

These events are dedicated to sharing four centuries of stories about women and their unique roles in our community.
