About this Organization:
The House of the Seven Gables is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation. The Gables was founded in 1910 as a historic site with a two part purpose. Our founder, Caroline Osgood Emmerton, purchased The Gables to preserve the legacy of 19th century American author Nathanial Hawthorne and to generate revenue from tours of The Gables to fund Settlement work in the immigrant community living in the neighborhood surrounding the site. Today, The House of the Seven Gables’ campus constitutes its own national historic district on The National Register of Historic Places and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 2007.

Nearly 120,000 visitors from all over the globe visit and tour the mansion, other historic buildings on the campus and the seaside colonial revival gardens each year. Educational themes include Nathaniel Hawthorne, maritime history, and architecture. The Settlement work continues, offering much needed support to the needy and recent immigrants making Salem, Massachusetts their home.
