House of the Seven Gables Tours

House of the Seven Gables
Made famous by the writing of Nathanial Hawthorne in 1851, the House of the Seven Gables, or the Turner-Ingersoll mansion in Salem, Massachusetts, stands as a bastion of New England history. It is also one of the oldest and largest remaining wooden mansions in New England. The House of the Seven Gables is located near the Derby Wharf, on Derby Street, between Turner and Hardy Streets.

The oldest parts of the House of the Seven Gables date back to 1668, when it was built by Captain John Turner. Turner was a trader and merchant whose father came over from England, but died when Turner was seven. It started out as two rooms, but quickly expanded to include more rooms and extensions. The house was remodeled numerous times over the next two centuries as it changed ownership a few times, ultimately becoming a museum in 1910.
