HOUSE OF SEVEN GABLES
(C) SARAH W SYMONDS
The House of the Seven Gables is a colonial mansion
in Salem, Massachusetts.
The House was built in 1668 by Captain John Turner.
The mansion was made famous by Nathaniel Hawthorne's book,
"The House of Seven Gables" written in 1850.
The Book's Setting was inspired by Hawthorne's cousin
Susanna Ingersoll who once owned the house
and by Hawyjorne's other ancestors who had played
a role in the Salem Witch Trials of 1692.
Sarh Symonds once had a gift shop across from the House of Seven Gables.
This Doorstop was made to commemorate its restoration in 1909.
The house has gone thru various changes over the years,
with the original front gables being removed.
