The Custom House - Historic Salem Greeting Card
This historic Salem greeting card features the beautiful brick Custom House on Derby Street in Salem, Massachusetts. This 1819 building is part of the Salem Maritime Museum, a national historic site that would be impressive just by its age and period architecture. But it is also where Nathaniel Hawthorne worked for three years. His time working here inspired the novel, The Scarlet Letter. Among the exhibits is his office restored to look as it did when Hawthorne worked here.
My trip to Historic Salem was on a sunny winter day as evidenced by the bare trees and the lady bundled up in her coat in the foreground. When I captured this view of the architecture, I didn't know any of the history of this beautiful old building. It simply felt historical and beautiful - little did I know!
Have you visited the Custom House in Salem, Massachusetts? Maybe you call Salem home? Or perhaps, like me, you love history? I hope you'll share what attracted you to the image on this particular Salem greeting card?
