  • We happened to walk by this and was pleasantly surprised to see such an interesting house. Worth a drive by and the cemetary is across the street.  more »
  • Our guide told us the story of Timothy Pickering. If you have a chance go on Kenneth's walking tour.  more »

  • The oldest house in Salem on its original foundation, occupied by 10 generations of the Pickering family, including Col. Timothy Pickering who served on George Washington's cabinet. Beautiful even to just walk by. It is open limited hours for a fee/donation.
  • I love The Pickering House. Well, I did not do a tour of this location. Well, not sure if they still do it, but on Halloween they open their doors to the public and my daughter and I would make sure we went there every year to get candy and I think that was very nice of them to do that. One thing I miss about Salem is Halloween when you go door to door at these beautiful homes and I am STILL impressed with some of the locations we went to. I miss the charm and history of Salem. Thank you, to The Pickering House for your generosity.
