What’s Happening in Salem this week
Seventeenth Century Saturdays at the Gedney House
Gedney House, 21 High Street on Saturday September 7th from 11am-3pm
Visit Gedney House during Seventeenth Century Saturdays and see why it is not your typical historic house. View original post-and-beam timbers, brick nogging, and early decorative finishes in Salem’s second oldest historic house. Tours are $5.00 for adults and free for Historic New England members and Salem residents. The museum will be open from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. with tours available on the hour. Space on tours is limited due to the structure of the house.
Flags of the Day
This Day in History
One of the first novels of the Beat movement of the 1950s, On the Road, by Jack Kerouac, is published on September 5, 1957. The novel chronicles the cross-country wanderings of a Kerouac-like hero, Sal Paradise, and his pal Dean Moriarty, and their free-ranging encounters with drugs, free love, and the budding counterculture. The book, which Kerouac wrote in just three weeks, became an instant classic.
I hope to see you here!
