Caroline Emmerton

Caroline Emmerton (1866 - 1942) was a Salem-born philanthropist and social activist. She founded The House of the Seven Gables Settlement Association in 1910. Her mission was to use proceeds from tours of the Turner-Ingersoll Mansion to create educational opportunities for Salem's immigrant communities.

Our Emmerton collection consists of photographs, newspaper clippings, portraits and the only known handwritten manuscripts, tour outlines and descriptions of the site.
