Deepwood is an 1894 Queen Anne Victorian Home situated on approximately 5 acres of manicured gardens and nature trails set in the heart of Salem near its downtown core. The home was placed on the National Register of Historic Homes in 1973. The museum is operated by the Friends of Deepwood, a non-profit organization created to disseminate information about the home and document life in Salem.
Deepwood may be a historic house, but it is so much more. It reaches through time to a modern era full of fun-loving people with annual events like the Wine & Jazz Festival, the Vintage Flea Market, the Children’s Halloween Party, and many more. Deepwood’s kids’ program launched in 2015 with fun educational events like President’s Day Hands-On History and the first annual Easter Egg Hunt and Alice’s Mad Hatter Tea Party, which attracted nearly 800 people to the grounds to look for eggs and pose with the Easter Bunny. As an educational nonprofit, Deepwood’s historic house museum offers a glimpse into the Victorian era with tours and exhibits, while its historic gardens are the stage for many public and private events, particularly weddings.
Whether you’ve never been to Deepwood, you visited years ago, or you were here last week, there’s always something new and exciting going on. Thanks for being a part of our living legacy!
