What’s Happening This Week?

August 25, 2019 Published By Julie Arrison-Bishop

It’s a calm before the October storm at The House of the Seven Gables. If you’re one of those lucky families who aren’t going back to school until after Labor Day, this is a great week to visit and check out all of the great history at The Gables and fun in the city of Salem.

With October coming, we’re also looking for a few good guides to join our ranks. You can apply to be a seasonal guide or admissions team member here.

On the preservation front, our carpenter Brian has been hard at work on some exterior restoration of the Phippen House. If you’ve visited our property before this is the yellow, Federal-style building adjacent to the parking lot. Brian has been repairing the entry doors and trim. We’re also hopeful that our local mason will be able to start his work on the foundation in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!

If you’re feeling hungry for some fun, be sure to sign up for Taste of The Gables. This is a wonderful event that supports our mission to be a welcoming, thriving, historic site and community resource that engages people of all backgrounds in our inclusive American story. We’ll have magic, music, and maybe even some mayhem!
