Join BHV member John Mathurin on this day trip to Salem. Explore the only mansion on historic Chestnut Street open to the public. Deemed the “most beautiful street in America,” Chestnut Street was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973 and contains a number of architecturally significant works of Samuel McIntire. The Phillips House, a Colonial Revival gem, houses a family collection that spans five generations from Salem’s Great Age of Sail. Enjoy a glimpse into the private world of the Phillips family and their staff during the early decades of the 20th century. The kitchen, pantry, and domestic staff bedroom present a rarely seen picture of how great houses functioned as new technologies were being introduced.


Meet at the North Station Commuter Rail between 10:00-10:15 a.m. for the 10:34 a.m. train to Salem (estimated arrival 11:05 a.m.) First, we’ll head over to the museum for our guided tour at 11:30 a.m. Following our tour, we’ll break for lunch with the option of some self-guided exploration of the historic downtown afterwards. Return to North Station on the 2:34 p.m. train (estimated return to North Station is 3:00 p.m.) Next train leaves Salem at 3:01. 

BHV members only: $13. Price covers admission and guided tour. Lunch and round-trip senior train fare are paid individually.
