March is National Women’s History Month and we are excited to be participating in Salem Women’s History day on March 27. The House of the Seven Gables board member Robin Woodman is presenting a lecture entitled “The Women of The House of the Seven Gables and their Community.” Woodman’s lecture will focus on the Turner women, who occupied the Turner-Ingersoll Mansion from 1668 until 1782 when the house was purchased by Captain Samuel Ingersoll. She will also touch on the Ingersoll women and The House of the Seven Gables Settlement Association founder Caroline Emmerton. All of these women played a role in the Salem community and witnessed many important moments in history.
Robin Woodman is a local historian who grew up on Forrester St in Salem, attending afterschool programs at The Gables Settlement Association. After attending Lesley University for an undergraduate History degree and Harvard University to obtain her masters, Robin returned to the Salem area as an adult, with a drive to give back to the community
