    For fans of Nathaniel Hawthorne, this is a must see....for everyone else....very informative...good insight into the history of the area and how those with money lived during the time. Well maintained and remodeled to show the era. A bit pricey...

    A house with a lot of history. If you like Nathaniel Hawthorne and American literature then you will really enjoy learning a bit more about the house that inspired a wonderful novel. It's a little pricey to get into the tour, but you can easily sneak in the back way and not have to pay a dime.

Description

History oozes from all corners of the House of the Seven Gables. Not only was it built in 1668 and is New England's oldest surviving home from the 17th century, but it also has its own spot on the National Register of Historic Places. Outside the home are two beautiful gardens sure to get the juices flowing in your green thumb. Inside, 2,000 artifacts, including framed artwork, historic photographs and rare books are all on display. Professional guides take you through the home and there is one mystery to solve yourself: Where in the world is that secret staircase?
