Elizabeth Cate Upton (1840-1909) purchased the Turner-Ingersoll Mansion in 1883 and lived in the house with her family until 1908 when they sold the site to Caroline Emmerton. The Uptons were the last family to call the “House of Seven Gables” home, and the first to offer tours of the building. An artistically-inclined family, they also taught music, oration and dance in Salem. Ida Upton Paine, an artist, created the “Witch Cup,” one of the first witch souvenirs sold in Salem.
