House of the Seven Gables (also known as the Turner House) is a 1668 colonial mansion in Salem, Massachusetts. The Nathaniel Hawthorne Birthplace is now immediately adjacent to the House of Seven Gables, and also covered by the admission fee. Within five minutes walking distance is the Salem Maritime Historic Site, 9 acres and 12 historic structures along the waterfront, in Salem Harbor, Salem, Massachusetts.
