In 1958, Nathaniel Hawthorne’s birthplace on Union Street was moved to the Gables site for its preservation. This footage from the first day of the move was given to the Gables shortly after, but until now has not been easily available to view in its 8mm format.

The full video is approximately 4 minutes long and can be made available upon request.
