About The House of the Seven Gables

History
This home was built for Captain John Turner in 1668. He was the head of one of the most successful maritime families in the New England Colonies. Captain Samuel Ingersoll purchased it in 1782 and it was his daughter, Susanna Ingersoll, who was the second cousin of Nathaniel Hawthorne. He visited her often in the mid 1800s, which is where he got his inspiration for his novel.

    Beautiful Wedding

    We feel incredibly lucky to have been able to get married at this location. There really aren't words to describe how grateful we are to Deb and the House of the Seven Gables for letting us use such beautiful grounds to get married and celebrate with our friends and family. The location cannot be beat - where else can you get historical buildings, lush grass and beautiful flowers right on the ocean?? Thank you so much for such a perfect day!

    The House of the Seven Gables was our dream venue for our ceremony and Deb made sure that our dream came true. The location is of course gorgeous being right on the water, next to beautiful historic homes, and an amazing garden. Deb is the coordinator and she works to make sure everything comes together for your day, from arranging chairs to queuing the musicians. She also helped to orchestrate our rehearsal and coordinated with all vendors as needed. I highly recommend getting married here!
