We have some catching up to do! It’s been a busy summer at The House of the Seven Gables. Thanks to so many of you who have come for tours, participated in our Enduring Hawthorne partnership with Salem Maritime National Historic Site, or enjoyed Celebrate the Fourth on our glorious seaside lawn!
On July 7, we had the chance to offer a preview of our Hawthorne in Hollywood film series. We showed the 1926 Scarlet Letter with the talented musical stylings of Peter Krasinski. You don’t want to miss out on this chance to see films inspired by Hawthorne’s novel at The Gables. The series kicks off on August 1. Purchase a POP! Pass and enjoyed admission to all films as well as popcorn and soft drinks.
Every weekend, our interpretive staff is offering Living History Labs. These are hands-on activities that range from Colonial Toys and Games to learning how to sew. Living History Labs happen 11:00 – 3:00 and are included with your admission to the site.
We also have a brand-new member benefit: use of our Research Library. Our senior interpreter, William Demick, has been working over the past year to organize and catalog hundreds of books, periodicals, and documents related to our site. Members have the exclusive benefit of using this cozy research space, located in the 1682 Hooper-Hathaway House.
