Tickets are still available for The Emerald Diamond tomorrow night at The Gables. Sports historian Brian Sheehy will discuss the immigrant influence on baseball from the Irish immigrants of the nineteenth century to the women of the World War II era to the array of international talent today. The players on the baseball diamond have been a representation of Americans since the early days of “America’s pastime.” Tickets available >>>here.<<<
On Thursday, we are looking forward to welcoming Keiko Orall, the director of the Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism. Keiko will be touring some of Salem’s best sites along with the staff from Destination Salem and the North of Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau. If you’ve had a great trip to the Bay State, Salem, or even The Gables say it loud and proud. Tourism matters to us and we’re always delighted to be a welcoming point in our great state!
We’re also so excited to announce our Taste of The Gables lineup later on this week. We have some of our perennial favorites as well as new restaurants ready to offer you a fabulous night to support our mission to be a welcoming, thriving, historic site and community resource that engages people of all backgrounds in our inclusive American story.
We wanted to send out a “thank you” to the many visitors who met up with us for Salem’s Heritage Days. At The Gables, we enjoyed sharing our connections to Salem’s maritime history with the Family Navigation Game and Living History Labs. We had a great time participating at the Salem Maritime Festival on Derby Wharf, too!Tags: baseball, baseball history, destination salem, heritage days, immigrants and baseball, keiko orall, mass office of travel and tourism, mott, north of boston, Salem, sports history, Taste of the Gables, vintage baseball
