John Ward House Block
John Ward House
(Federal Garden area)
One of the finest surviving 17th-century building in New England. It originally stood on a one-acre plot with a kitchen garden, an outhouse, and a well - opposite the jail used during the witchcraft trials. The style of this house is often called First Period or Post-Medieval - characterized by the extremely steep pitch of the gables, large central chimney, asymmetrical façade, batten door, diamond-paned leaded casement windows, and second- story overhang. One of the earliest buildings to be relocated and restored for historic interpretation in the United States, the house is a National Historic Landmark.
"Salem has a uniquely rich architectural heritage. Every major American architectural style is represented within its borders."
Now you can tour PEM's historic homes from your own home! The museum's physical campus includes three city blocks and several off-site properties. We have collaborated with Cats Meow Village to recreate the museum's historic houses in their signature style. On the back of each is a brief description of the house and a QR code that will link to the PEM Walks tour, where you can find out more about the home's architectural history.
This John Ward House is part of the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts.
The back includes a PEM Walks QR code that gives you an audio postcard tour of the Marine Hall. You can scan at home and listen, too!
We handcraft the Marine Hall in 3/4" thick wood with colorful details on the front and history on the back. H3.75 x W5.75 inches.
Casper, our black cat mascot, is watching for any mice to appear in the landscaping. It's his job to keep the rodents clear of the front door.
