What’s Happening This Week?

June 3, 2019 Published By Julie Arrison-Bishop

It’s been one heck of dismal spring here in New England. One thing is a perk – our historic gardens look amazing! Our tulips are slowly being transplanted with heirloom summer blooms, the wisteria are at their peak, and the peonies are ready to pop! Be sure to ask for our historic garden guide when you visit to get the most out of your stroll.

We are in the first week of testing out some of our team suggestions from the interpretive planning process. Our guides are offering a special tour of the attic that focuses on who worked in the house throughout the years and the dining room chamber is *finally* on our tour rotation and we’re sharing everyone’s favorite house model and some rarely seen architectural objects from our collection. This tour will be going on through June 11 and then we’ll be sharing a new history.

We also wanted to remind our neighbors in Salem that we are free for you to enjoy! Whether you want to help us with testing out a tour or just bring a book and enjoy the gardens, it’s a wonderful extra for being a Salem resident!
