Gendering Work: Mills, Homes, and Everywhere Else in the Industrial Era

September 23, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

The House of the Seven Gables Settlement Association was founded to preserve the famed Turner-Ingersoll Mansion and to provide support services for newly arriving immigrants in 1910. Salem’s Point Neighborhood has long been one of the enclaves for immigrant families. Elizabeth Duclos-Orsello will offer a walking tour of the Point neighborhood focusing on the work in the mills, small neighborhood business, and homes, with a particular focus on the sites of women’s work. What has made this neighborhood function through the years? Join us to find out.

This program will be offered for free as part of Essex National Heritage Area’s Trails and Sails events. Space is limited and registration is required.

The walking tour will last 60 – 90 minutes depending on crowd size.
