A Guided Tour of Architecturally Significant Homes of Salem, MA

Salem, Mass. contains one of the greatest concentrations of notable pre-1900
domestic structures extant in the U.S. Of particular interest are the numerous
Federal Era townhouses and free standing homes lining Chestnut Street –
considered one of the most beautiful streetscapes in America. We will not only see
the impressive exterior facades along this street, but also be invited inside by the
current owners to view the significant details of the first floors.

The tour will be led by the prominent lecturer, curator, and scholar, Dean
Lahikainen, the Carolyn and Peter Lynch Curator of American Decorative Art at
the Peabody Essex Museum of Salem. Mr. Lahikainen is the author of Samuel
McIntire, Carving an American Style, the book associated with the hugely
successful exhibit of 2007 - 2008, which explored McIntire’s architectural
carvings.

Attendance will be limited to 25 people. We will walk in the historic district and be
admitted to 4 private homes, plus one home owned by Historic New England.
There will be a social hour after the tour at a private home, with hors d’oeuvres and wine.
