    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!

    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?

    I forgot to take pictures of the summer beams in the main rooms downstairs when I visited last summer. I can’t quite see the beams in the photos on the site. I think I remember that the beams have a beaded edge. Is that right? Or is there a close-up photo of the beams(s) somewhere on your site?

    • Curator says:

      So sorry to not get back to you in a more timely manner, we have been having website issues. The beams in the Great Hall have a beaded edge, we don’t currently have any pictures up but I will see if I can find some and email them to you.

    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.
