The Pickering House
18 Broad Street
Salem, MA
United States

Join us for a tour of Salem’s oldest house and America’s oldest home.  The Pickering House has been “home” to 10 generations of a single family for over 350 years. Built in 1651 by settler John Pickering and his wife Elizabeth, it began as a two-room farmhouse that over the years added wings, gables and Gothic peaks.  It was home to carpenters, farmers, patriots, military leaders, deacons, diplomats, linguists, and statesmen.  Come experience the richness of American history!
