This ended up being our favorite stop in Salem. We are a couple of bookworms, so the literary history was incredible, but the history of the house and its connection to the surrounding area were very interesting. The architecture is beautiful and the tour guide was amazing. The house holds a lot of fun secrets. We would definitely tour it again!
The House of the Seven Gables was built in 1668, and would ultimately become a beloved National Historic Landmark. This place became famous thanks to Nathaniel Hawthorne’s 1851 novel, The House of the Seven Gables. What really makes this 1668 New England colonial mansion special, is the beautiful story it tells for three generations of the Turner family.
With beautiful views of the Salem Harbor, you can bring your family and step inside and have a first-hand experience of The House of the Seven Gables that inspired the romantic novel. The museum also has a great gift store for Salem souvenirs.
