  Nathaniel Hawthorne's birthplace
by gosiaPL

The house in which Hawthorne was born stands within the House of the 7G complex but it was moved here in 1958 from its original location in Union St. Sounds like moving the houses around in order to restore and protect them was a common thing in Salem :-) For anyone who enjoys Hawthorne's novels, it's a nice experience to tour the house... although in terms of furnishing and decor, it's nowhere near the attractiveness of the House of the 7G.
