The House of the Seven Gables Settlement Association was founded in 1910 by Caroline Emmerton. She restored the Turner-Ingersoll Mansion, opened it as a museum and used proceeds from admission to support important social work. Today, the organization continues her legacy by preserving our National Historic Landmark District and leveraging its power as an icon of American culture to support educational programs in our local community.
