The bosom of America is open to receive not only the Opulent and respected Stranger, but the oppressed and persecuted of all Nations and Religions; whom we shall welcome to a participation of all our rights and privileges...." George Washington.

We invite you to join us in a Naturalization Ceremony on The House of The Seven Gables lawn on Tuesday, September 17, 2019, at 12:00 p.m. The House of the Seven Gables Settlement Association in collaboration with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will proudly host this event. Dozens of new citizens from all over the world will be taking the Oath of Allegiance, after which they will receive their Certificate of Naturalization officially making them a citizen of the United States. This date honors the journeys and many roads traveled by these hopeful individuals to officially be ‘named’ Americans. The pride and excitement are palpable.

Join us in welcoming and celebrating our U.S. citizens.
This event is free and open to the public, weather permitting. If there is inclement weather, this event will be open to new citizens and their guests only.

What's New in Membership
“Tasty” Benefits

Being a member of The House of the Seven Gables has many advantages. One benefit is a 20% savings on admission to Taste of The Gables. Our event of the year is going strong on its 7th anniversary and packed with fun. Our luckiest lineup of vendors will be on hand serving savory morsels, sweet treats, local spirits, craft brews and more! Purchase your Taste of the Gables tickets and SAVE >>

This savings is just one of the many member benefits at The Gables and we are always adding more.  Beginning on Friday, September 13, head over to the Hawthorne Hotel’s Tavern on The Green for their Chocolate Bread Pudding Trifle inspired by Nathaniel Hawthorne’s love of dessert.  As stated in the blog, Paper and Salt, “Hawthorne could always find a little extra room when the main courses were cleared.”  The blog goes on to say that in a letter to his son, Julian, Hawthorne writes, “I had hardly any appetite left.” Nevertheless, “I did manage to eat some currant pudding, and a Banbury cake, and a Victoria cake, and a slice of beautiful Spanish musk-melon, and some plums."

Members of The Gables will enjoy 25% off this tasty treat. Simply show the server your member card. Not a member? Join today >> This delightful trifle only available for a limited time – hurry in!

We are thrilled to partner with The Hawthorne Hotel, a Taste of The Gables vendor and sponsor, to bring our members this delicious new benefit.
What's New in Preservation

Preservation work here at The House of the Seven Gables is a never-ending job. For the campus to retain its year-round beauty requires the work of a talented preservation and maintenance team. Their daily tasks and projects may go unnoticed as larger projects, such as the painting of The Gables, take center stage­ — but their hands are never idle. As fall comes upon us, clapboards are being replaced and repaired, walking paths leveled for proper drainage, garden beds tended as summer blooms fade away, and signage reinforced as we prepare for the October crowds.

In 1668, John Turner paid to have this house built. The fortunes of all who lived here are dispersed. The names of many who lent their hand to this work are lost to time. However, it is the work of their hands that stands today. We celebrate the lasting and important work of all of those who have been involved in preserving these structures.
