What’s Happening This Week

August 18, 2019 Published By Julie Arrison-Bishop

Our interpretive planning project is anticipated to take us 3-5 years to complete, but there is always routine maintenance for our visitor services staff to take care of to ensure the best possible experience for our visitors. Our collections manager and marketing coordinator have worked together to complete a new set of museum labels to better enhance learning in the Nathaniel Hawthorne Birthplace. We have lots to do for this small but mighty house in the coming years, but for now, you’ll know where the great author was born, learn about the rooms, and see some of our unique collections related to Hawthorne on view.

We’re also working on collecting feedback from our visitors about their welcome experience on site. We’d love to know what you think of our Visitor Center. What’s great? What can be improved? Feel free to send an email with your feedback to

We hate to be the place to send you this reminder but summer is winding down. This is a staff-favorite time to visit our historic site and fun community. The weather is perfect to dine al fresco, the lines are short, and the scenery is at its peak.

Are you an educator? We’re also booking fall field trips! We offer an array of options to plan the perfect visit for your students.
