The House of Seven Gables Settlement Association welcomes offers of donations to our collections and is grateful to be considered by donors. All gifts to our collections and archives must first be approved by the collections manager who will provide the donor with legally mandated paperwork to be completed prior to receipt of the material.
The Museum has limited storage, so is only able to accept items related to: the families that have lived and worked here; the site and buildings; the Derby Street neighborhood and associated Settlement work; and Nathaniel Hawthorne’s work, life and family.
Please do not send or leave donations without first contacting Collections Manager Susan Baker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you wish to use or reproduce materials from the collections or archives for any reason, please contact Holly Watson, Marketing Department, at email@example.com, who will inform you if there are any restrictions on a case-by-case basis.
