When it comes to seeing old houses in the United States Salem, Massachusetts has an abundance of them. In this post, we are going to learn about the Turner-Ingersoll Mansion also known as the House of the Seven Gables. The home is immense in size and has been refurbished and preserved to its original state. It has a link to the American literary figure, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and through him a link to the Salem Witch Trials of 1692. Its history is long and storied and even holds some paranormal activity. Yay! Ghosts! My favourite.
