High above the House of the Seven Gables, the iconic Salem witch takes flight, accompanied by her faithful black cat. Join them for a moonlit ride with the Witch Over the Gables Cat’s Meow Model.

The image of a witch flying on a broom has come to symbolize the city of Salem, but few know that it originated within the House of the Seven Gables. The mansion’s last residents, the Uptons, began touring Hawthorne fans through the house in the late 1800s. A daughter of the family, Ida Upton, sold hand-painted “witch cups” and “witch plates” to tourists that were decorated with the earliest rendition of this classic image. Her design has inspired countless variations over the last century.

Grow your Cat’s Meow village with this House of the Seven Gables’ exclusive model of the Turner-Ingersoll Mansion. Make sure to keep an eye out for the signature black cat included in each one.
