Christmas in Salem – A Very Hawthorne Holiday
December 1, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm
One event on December 2, 2018 at 11:30am
Christmas in Salem, thought to be the nation’s longest running holiday house tour, invites visitors to tour historic homes in Salem’s Historic Derby Street Neighborhood from November 30–December 2, 2018. Homes will be beautifully decorated for the holiday season set to the theme of “A Very Hawthorne Holiday” to celebrate The House of the Seven Gables’ 350th Anniversary.
The Preview Candlelight Tour (for advance ticket holders only) will be held on Friday, November 30, 2018, from 5:30–8:30 pm and will feature selected homes. On Saturday, December 1st from 10:00 am–4:30 pm and Sunday, December 2nd from 11:30 am–4:30 pm all sites will be open for tours.
Christmas in Salem has become far more than a house tour. It’s now a city-wide event for both residents and out-of-town visitors. There are local attractions, walking tours, live music, and discounts available for all tour-goers.
Christmas in Salem is the annual fundraiser for Historic Salem, Inc., an advocacy group dedicated to ensuring that the historic resources of Salem, Massachusetts, which are the key to its identity, its quality of life, and its economic vitality, are preserved for future generations and that new development complements the historic character of the city.
