Salem, Massachusetts is one of those quaint New England villages that oozes beautiful historic homes! It's like a giant Cat's Meow Village!
I designed this Ropes Mansion in collaboration with @purelysalem who shares his love of all things Salem in his Instagram feed. You can find Matt there, say hello and tell him I sent you.

318 Essex Street, Salem, Massachusetts
This Georgian Colonial house has been open to the public since 1912 when the last two Ropes sisters bequeathed it to the public. A formal garden was added behind the house that year and has been a place of beauty and tranquility for Salem citizens to enjoy through all seasons.
Ropes Mansion was built in the late 1720s was owned by only two families (Samuel Barnard and three generations of the Ropes family) before becoming a public building. Today, the Peabody Essex Museum operates the house and gardens which are open to the public free of charge.
Wouldn't this whole Salem Christmas Collection look cute tucked within your holiday decor?
How about: on the mantle, tabletop centerpiece, under the tree, or perched on wainscoting or a windowsill.
Our workshop of 15 crew members handcrafts this and all our Cat's Meows in Wooster, Ohio, which is an 11-hour drive due west of Salem.
We craft it from 3/4" thick wood with all the colorful details on the front and a story on the back.
Look for Casper, my black cat mascot resting by the fence pillar. He's looking for as many scritches as he can get!
