$57

with Sue De CeSare

Calendar Apr 21, 2018 at 8:30 am, runs for 1 week

Welcome back to Salem. Now is the time to get to know a little more about Salem. We will be touring  the House of Seven Gables, then off to the Salem Witch Museum. Lunch will be on your own. You can spend the afternoon at your leisure. For those who wish to have a psychic medium,  clairvoyant, palm reader or Tarot therapist session, this is your opportunity.

House of Seven Gables - The House of the Seven Gables has an 18th century granite sea wall, and two seaside Colonial Revival Gardens. The museum houses more than 2,000 artifacts and objects, more than 40 framed works, 500 photographs and glass plate negatives, and more than 50 volumes in a rare book library. When we arrive at The House of the Seven Gables guides will greet us for an unforgettable historical experience. The House of the Seven Gables, also known as the Turner-Ingersoll Mansion was built in 1668, and is the oldest surviving 17th century wooden mansion in New England. The House of the Seven Gables inspired author Nathaniel Hawthorne to write his legendary novel of the same name. The home where Hawthorne was born was moved to The House of the Seven Gables and now lies just feet away from the mysterious mansion. When you step into the Nathaniel Hawthorne House (c.1750), you will learn about the life of the famous author.

Salem Witch Museum - Then off to the Salem Witch Museum where we will follow the history of witches, witchcraft and witch hunts through a presentation of the events of the Salem Witch Trials of 1692. Witches - Evolving Perceptions is a provocative exhibit which presents the ancient pagan wise woman, the stereotypical witch, modern witchcraft and the phenomenon of witch hunts.
