Living History Labs for April Vacation: Caroline Emmerton’s 1916 Settlement
April 15 @ 11:00 am - April 23 @ 3:00 pm
In 1916, Caroline Emmerton’s Settlement House served the immigrant families living in the neighborhood of the museum. The children often attended classes that taught household and industrial skills like cooking, woodworking, sewing and gardening. They and other family members also joined theatrical, musical, and athletic clubs offered through Emmerton’s charity.
Come join us April 15th – 23rd from 11:00 to 3:00 for our Living History Labs, featuring hands-on activities based off these Settlement House programs of the early 20th century. Play both scientist and historian in ‘lab experiments’ where you practice your sewing, work on your paper folding skills or play 1916 games.
This special programming is ongoing during these hours and is part of your museum ticket.
Registration is not required.
Salem residents are always free at The House of the Seven Gables with proof of residency.
