The ranger led tour was very interesting This was a home to middle class people It is not restored but has interesting displays of relics that tell the stories of the people who lived there over the years Some of the items were found when the area where the residents dumped the garbage was excavated I especially enjoyed learning how some of the women who lived here supported themselves by running a cent shop This small house has lots of stories to tell

I've never been on another tour like it- It was a wonderful opportunity to see the remains of a house that would have been occupied by a fairly middle class family. More than that, the decision not to restore it has given tour goers the chance to really examine how the house has survived over the years, and especially through out the generations of the different families who have lived there.

Luckily, we were able to sign up for this ranger-led tour today. Small spaces limit size of group to 8 and tour fills fill up quickly. Interesting to see how middle class folks lived in this area in the 17th century. We enjoy the history part of Salem so this fit right in with our interest in learning more about the area.

Was very pleased to find out that this is a free self guided look, with a member of the Parks Dept, there to answer questions. It is a quick look into the first floor of this house, but the house and artifacts inside are very cool to look at if you are a history lover.

We were wondering the village in search of the Hawthorne House when we came across the Narbonne House. What a wonderful opportunity to see how the 99% lived 200 years ago. Highly recommended.
