If you would like to request a private tour on a day that we are not open to the public we please ask that you give us at least 2 weeks notice as we only have a small number of volunteers able to open the site at this time. (Please note that we will not be taking any requests December-February)

For a private group of 5 or less people we charge a $50 opening fee, but for larger groups over 5 people we charge the standard admission rate. You can message us on Facebook or email to book a private tour.

    Do I need to reserve for a group of 5-6 people coming on Friday 6/26 for a 2 p.m. tour?

    I know this is a long shot but I only just discovered that this existed! We’re visiting from Ontario and I am a direct descendant of William Towne (Rebecca’s father). Is there any chance of swinging by for a visit on the morning of May 25th (That’s when we’re leaving to head home)? I know it’s not 72 hours notice but I thought it was worth a shot to ask!

      Small world! I’m a direct descendant of William Towne too! Further down the line they dropped the e and my grandfather was Ira Town

  3. Hi, Rebecca is my 9th great grandmother. I live in Florida & am making Fall trip. Oct. 3rd. we arrive in Manchester N.H. I had wanted to see the homestead, but noticed you
    are only open Fri. – Sun in October. Is the grounds open that I could walk around or is everything closed up?
    Thank you for your response.

    My son and I are descendants of George Jacobs. In two weeks, we will travel to Massachusetts for the first time. We are looking forward to visiting the Rebecca Nurse Homestead. I wonder, may we leave flowers at the gravesite? What else would you recommend we do in the Salem-Danvers area to learn more about George at the time of the Salem Witch Trials?

    Hello, I am trying to get in contact with someone regarding setting up a field trip stop for my high school juniors who are currently reading The Crucible. I am unable to reach anyone by phone despite trying numerous times. Is there another way to contact?

    My students are really looking forward to this trip and I believe this would be the perfect last stop!

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    I have a cradle that was handed down to me from a Towne/Peabody relative. I believe it to be from Jacob Towne, the brother of Rebecca Towne Nurse. It was repaired at some point so it does not contain totally original wood and nails. Are you interested in adding it to your collection?

    We will be in Salem Saturday October 20th thru October 23rd. This tour is of great interest to us since she is our ancestor and the main focus of our visit. I could only find times available for tours but not the days open. If you could please direct me to days and times open to public it would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    I have just learned that I am a direct descendant of Rebecca and will be in the area next Thursday morning (10/24) after driving a friend from northern Vermont to the airport on the 23rd and spending the night. Any chance of visiting on Thursday morning? I have to return to Vermont for work that afternoon. Thank you.

    Hello, I have visited this homestead at least four different times. Spring, summer, fall and winter. I enjoyed the whole area of Danvers and the surrounding area. I love discovering and exploring, so this was easily worth multiple visits were a must for me. The beauty isn’t tainted by the seasonal changes.
    I was on an extended stay in Salem. 2012-2014. I have also shown photographs to people here back home in the beauty of the northern Arizona. Hi once again from the mountain man from Sedona, Another beautiful part of my country. I am now exploring the beauty of the Great Lakes. I will be heading west once the travel restrictions are lifted. Thanks for the post of your part of this big blue ball.
    (2020 Michigan) Whoo-Ho0, Salem in October, great fun to be had. I enjoyed. My tour of New England, I could go on, I digress, Be Safe and take care of each other, Relative

    Hi, my husband and I are going to be in the Salem area on oct 12& 13th which is a Tuesday and wednesday. We would love to do a tour but I thought that I remembered you only being open on Weekends. It being October I thought you might have extended hours? I also just saw that you have twilight tours, Do you know the dates? We were really hoping to visit, any info will help.

    Hoping to visit in October 2021 Sat the 9th. Are there 2 tours, a 10 am and a 3 PM or doe tours occur between those hours? There would likely be just two of us. Should we reserve ahead?

    • Curator says:

      We aren’t doing guided tours at this time, everything is self guided but we have an audio tour you can use from your phone to listen to the information and we will have capable staff around to answer any other questions you may have.
