Please join us at The House of the Seven Gables on Sunday, April 7th for a tea to celebrate Gables founder Caroline Emmerton’s birthday. Enjoy an afternoon tea service catered by Ferreira Foods Social Catering with teas provided by Jolie Tea Company and a short presentation on Caroline’s life by local historian Irene Axelrod.

All proceeds from the event benefit The Gables’ Collections Fund and a series of conservation projects planned for paintings related to the women of The Gables. Last year, we raised funds to restore Flight Into Egypt, a Sophia Peabody Hawthorne painting believed to be from Caroline’s collection. The next painting to be preserved in the program is a portrait of Sophia by Joseph Alexander Ames, painted several years before her marriage to Nathaniel Hawthorne.

Come and enjoy the spring gardens. After the program, there is an option to take a tour of The Gables which will include a viewing of the conserved Flight into Egypt, Sophia’s portrait, and the newly opened Settlement Worker bedroom.

Please register early as there is limited seating available.
