Tour Information

October 2020 we will be open Saturdays & Sundays from 10:00am-3:00pm CLICK HERE  link to pre-purchase admission tickets. 

Please note that our open hours will be limited and are subject to change we will post on our Facebook and website with any last minute changes to our schedule.

Due to the new Massachusetts regulations on visiting historic structures we will be instituting these new rules and guidelines (see below). If you are traveling from outside of Massachusetts please read the new COVID-19 Travel Order. MA Travel Advisory.

NEW VISITATION GUIDELINES 

  1. In adherence with state law and to protect the safety of visitors and staff, face coverings that cover the nose and mouth are required at all times while on site, the only exceptions include children under the age of 2 and those unable to wear a mask or face covering due to a medical condition. (A face covering can include anything that covers BOTH your nose and mouth; homemade cloth masks, neck gaiters, and bandanas. According to Massachusetts regulations plastic face shields (without a mask), or masks with vents/valves are NOT acceptable face coverings.
  2. Each visitor/family will be asked to sign a waiver with their name and phone number or email address as a safety measure. Should an outbreak occur and we can notify those who were here on that day. (This information will not be sold or shared publicly)
  3. Due to the limited space and capacity (which prohibit social distancing) we will not be conducting guided tours of the buildings. Instead we will have the historic buildings open for a self-guided walk-thru. Our knowledgeable staff will still be available to talk with visitors about the history of the site and answer any questions.  Educational materials will be available.
  4. We will be limiting the capacity of each building as follows:
    •  The Nurse House will be allowing 1 visitor to walk through at a time. (If you are from the same household you will be able to walk through together)
    • The replica Meetinghouse will be allowed up to 20 visitors at a time as long as social distancing rules (6ft. spacing between groups) are being followed.
    • The Endicott Barn/ Gift Shop will be allowed 2 visitors at a time.

You can also download our Site Brochure and Map before you visit and bring it with you.

Admission: Adults $9.00, Seniors (65+) $7.00, Children (6-16) $6.00, & Children under 6 FREE.

    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!
    Thanks!

  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
