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

    • Curator says:

      You usually don’t need to if it’s only 5 or 6 of you, we very rarely reach capacity on our tours, but just make sure you should show up a little before the 2:00 tour starts.

    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!
    Thanks!

    In September, would it be okay to stop by during the week to photograph some items inspired by Rebecca Nurse and George Jacobs? I can’t make it to Danvers on the weekend but I’d really like to photograph these items on the landscape. Thanks!

    • Curator says:

      You are welcome to take pictures anytime during the open hours. We allow anyone to take pictures for their own use, but we do not allow commercial photographers to take pictures they intend to sell or use in publications without obtaining a permit from us.

  4. 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.

    Can one take pictures inside the Rebecca Nurse House?

    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?

    • Curator says:

      You may leave flowers at the gravesite if you wish. There is not a lot to see that pertains to George Jacobs as his house was torn down a number of years ago. Salem has a number of commercial sites but their is an excellent documentary film played at the Visitor Center in Salem that covers a lot about the trials, and stopping by the Witch Trials Memorial in Salem will have a bench in memory of Jacobs as well.

    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?

  10. Ernest Johnston says:

    Please let me know if you are planning any special event for July 19 this year. My children and I are descendants and plan to go the Danvers on that date, and we would like to know if we should be there at any particular time. I have tried to telephone and send email messages, but there has been no response.

    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.
