|The Pickman House was built 1664|
The right-hand side of was built for John Pickering, Sr before he died in 1657 on land granted to him in 1637. It was a house on two floors, with a single room on each floor, and an entry bay.
The planned demolition of this house in 1944 prompted the restoration of this and other buildings in this historic city.
Facing Salem Harbor, it was originally a two-room, 2 1/2 story house with cross-gables and a massive central chimney. It now forms the middle of the house. Four windows of the original ground-floor room (which became a dining room) remain in the house's side wall. The house has been extended several times, but retains it unmistakable colonial style architecture
