Hold on to your hats! It’s going to be a BIG week at The House of the Seven Gables – and you’re invited!
Besides welcoming hundreds of visitors and school children who are starting to enjoy the nice spring weather, we are ready for the opening of POP! Goes The Gables. Our newest exhibit opens on Friday, April 5 at 5:00 p.m. The Gables presents an annual exhibition that encourages staff and volunteers to delve into the past of the famed mansion and share its stories with a wide and diverse audience. New research is presented through curated informational panels and objects from the organization’s collection. Our 2019 exhibit will focus on the lasting mark The House of the Seven Gables has made on American culture. It explores popular culture and the effect it has had on The Gables and beyond. The opening party is free and open to the public. Click here to RSVP!
On Wednesday, April 3, we’ll be hosting our next Becoming American film and discussion event. “Family and Community” explores how family ties and community institutions have played an essential role in successful migration and adaptation to American life. The selected film for April 3 is My American Girls. To register, click here, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 978-306-7001.
In preservation, our crew is putting the finishing touches on a major, three-building HVAC project that started in 2018. Our gardener, Robin Kantor, will be on site soon to check on the spring gardens. We’re also looking forward to finally covering up that primer on The Gables with a fresh coat of our custom paint.
We also wanted to thank our many neighbors who came out for our Welcome Home Days. It was a delight to have you and your families enjoying some local history at The House of the Seven Gables. We hope to see more of you at the many amazing events we have lined up this year!
