Through luck and foresight, the Balch House has survived while the hundreds of homes from the same era have fallen to progress or decay.
The John Cabot House is a Georgian style mansion built in 1781 during the Revolutionary War, and the home to an important ship owner.
John Hale was born in Charlestown, MA in 1636 and came to Beverly to preach when it was still known as the “Bass River Side” of Salem. The property mirrors the evolution of the community of Beverly.
Balch Family History Through Time and Trash
Have you heard the expression, “one person’s trash is another person’s treasure”? This exhibit explores the 1998 excavation performed at the Balch House. Through items found during the dig, we can learn who was living on the premises, what they were using, when they were using it, and how they were obtaining it.
Emerging from Salem's Shadow
Step back in time with this visual chronology of the Hale House history. Images dating back to the early days of photography, through the present day tell the story of just a fraction of the property’s 329 years.

Set at Liberty
These are stories of citizens, black and white, battling against the unjust system of slavery; of enslaved men fighting for freedom for our nation, though not free themselves; of a woman using the law to emancipate her family; and of the racism that affected Beverly’s black population, long after they were freed from bondage.
