June 1 kicks off the monthly 17th Century Saturdays celebration in Essex County and at The House of the Seven Gables. First-period homes from around the region will be offering special activities all day.

The Gables will offer free garden passes on June 1. With the garden pass, you can enjoy Living History Labs in the 1682 Hooper-Hathaway House, and unique shopping in the Museum Store, located in the c.1655 Retire Beckett House. Take in the architecture, seaside views, and the annual exhibit Pop! Goes The Gables.

Guided tours of The House of the Seven Gables will be included with regular, paid admission.

Check out the offerings for our new Arts and Mysteries Revealed on first Saturdays. Uncover the secrets and techniques of trades, chores & crafts of the past. Historical trade demonstrations will vary each month.
