Nathaniel Hawthorne House

The birthplace of Nathaniel Hawthorne (at 54 Turner Street in Salem) now rests next to theTurner-Ingersoll Mansion, one of the oldest 17th century wood mansions still standing and the very house that inspired Hawthorne’s novel, The House of the Seven Gables. Together these homes make a thrilling memorial to the famous author, providing a glimpse into both fact (with some of his own furnishings and items) and fiction. (The Turner-Ingersoll Mansion includes a penny shop like the one opened in Hawthorne’s famous novel). The tours here are guided, so you’re sure to gain a deeper understanding of Hawthorne himself, his work, and the world in which he lived that inspired his well-known literary works.
