The House of Seven Gables – Hooper-Hathaway House

115 Derby St., Salem MA 01970

Description

The Hooper-Hathaway House is a building that was rescued through the combined efforts of Caroline Emmerton and the Society for the Preservation of New England Antiquities. Built in 1682, Miss Emmerton purchased the house and moved it from Washington Street to its present location in when it was threatened with destruction in 1911. It was been heavily restored in the Colonial Revival Style, and its wonderfully nostalgic diamond pane windows are a 1911 creation, but it still retains some very exciting Jacobean details.
