Living History Lab!

What was it like to write a letter with a quill? What did people eat in 1668? What chores did they do? Find out this summer in our Living History Lab at The House of the Seven Gables. Every weekend starting July 4th, guests will play both scientist and historian by getting their hands and minds on some fun and engaging experiences from the past.
