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?

What People Are Saying
I'm a Hill and when I saw this I just had to buy it. I have so many fond memories of spending summer weeks down in Montezuma at Nanny and Paw's store. I was so sad when the flood filled the store with water but it was a testament to the community when so many banded together to help out afterwards. Just know I bought this print to frame and take to Nanny so she can enjoy it as well. Thank you so much for making this ❤️

The Fox Theatre is Definitely FABULOUS! THIS BLACK AND WHITE VERSION GIVES EXTRA NOSTALGIA I believe, is why I picked this 1, though I love ALL OF Mark's pics of the Fox. The theatre is Beautiful, I went to 2 - 3 concerts there years ago & So glad it didn't get torn down. Mark captured Great details in this pic!!

She Loves It!
My girlfriend just received the print, and she loves it! We both love the vibrant colors, and Forsyth Park, Savannah in general, and Tybee Island are special to us because she lives in NC and I live in FL, so every once in a while we’ll meet in the middle and explore together.
Thank you so much!
