House Of Seven Gables
Built in 1668, the House of Seven Gables is the oldest surviving 17th century wooden mansion in New England. The home in which Hawthorne was born was moved to The House of the Seven Gables and now lies just feet away from the mysterious mansion made famous in fiction. At the Nathaniel Hawthorne House (c.1750), visitors will learn about the life of the famous author.
