The Stories Within These Walls was commissioned by the Salem Museum to share the surprising history of the 1845 Williams Brown House. The house is the heart of the Salem Museum, but the structure has been put to a variety of uses in its nearly 150-year life. The film was made possible through the generous support of the Helen S. and Charles G. Patterson, Jr., Foundation Trust.
