AAA Editor Notes

John Ward House is on Brown St. on the Peabody Essex Museum campus. Moved to this site in 1910, the 1684 building originally stood on a 1-acre plot with a kitchen garden, an outhouse and a well. Characterized by its steep gables, large central chimney, diamond-paned windows and second-story overhang, it is one of the earliest structures to be relocated and restored for historic interpretation in the U.S. Guided tours are available.
(includes Peabody Essex Museum and historic house tours) $20; $18 (senior citizens, students with ID and to all after 5 p.m.); free (ages 0-16 and Salem residents with ID).
Hours: Open Tues.-Sun. and Mon. holidays 10-5. The house is included in the "Shelter to Showpiece" tour.
