The House of the Seven Gables, Salem, Massachusetts – October 4, 2009

Prior to writing this blog post, I never really bothered wondering what a “gable” actually was. But I do know that I had to see this House with the Seven Gales while I was in Salem.

Aside from being a historical building, there was a novel of the same name in our house for many years. So the name had recall to me. I never read the book, but there was a drawing on the cover.

According Wikipedia, a gable is a triangular section of the house. And this house… had 7… of course.

We took a lot of pictures outside. I was too cheap to pay for the tour and go inside. From the witch house and the witch museum. I wasn’t sure if it was worthwhile… hehe.
