April Vacation at The Gables: Miss Emmerton’s Settlement House (CANCELLED)

April 21, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

In 1916, Caroline Emmerton’s Settlement House served the immigrant families living in the neighborhood of the museum. The children often attended classes that taught household and industrial skills like cooking, woodworking, sewing, and gardening.

Join us April 18 – 26 from 11:00 to 3:00 for our Living History Labs, featuring hands-on activities based on Settlement House programs of the early 20th century. Play both scientist and historian in ‘lab experiments’ where you practice your sewing, work on your paper folding skills or play 1916 games.

This event is included with general admission. It is free for Gables members and Salem residents.
