Cost: Free

The House of the Seven Gables Settlement Association as we know it today was established in 1910 and had grown out of the philanthropic work of our founder, Caroline Emmerton, and the Salem Settlement Committee to serve Salem’s immigrant population. Over the last nearly 120 years, Settlement work has changed with the needs of the groups it serves. While many Settlement Associations closed over the course of the 20th century, the legacy, and in many cases the community offerings, remain. Additionally, the immigrant groups in Salem, their stories, and their contributions have changed, creating a more colorful and diverse cultural fabric here in Salem and the North Shore.

This year’s Community Conversations series will focus on the history of the Settlement movement, the cultures of the groups with whom we work, and what Settlement and Salem looks like today.
