On select weekend nights in October, step into the world of Salem author Nathaniel Hawthorne as you experience two dramatic theatrical performances played out within historic houses connected directly to Hawthorne himself. The Legacy of the Hanging Judge and Spirits of The Gables were created in 2001 by local writer Anne Lucas and have been performed on October weekends since then.”
