Hooper-Hathaway House

The Hooper-Hathaway House was built in 1682 on Washington Street. It once house Salem’s “Old Bakery”, but was scheduled to be demolished for a new structure in 1911. Caroline Emmerton purchased the building in 1911 and moved it next to the Turner-Ingersoll Mansion to save it from demolition.

The house has been used for over a century to enhance Emmerton’s educational programs for immigrant families and still hosts programming, lectures and classes today.
