Pickering House Renovation on NH Preservation Alliance Walking Tour

In 2015, Pickering House was on the New Hampshire Preservation Alliance’s “Seven to Save” list of endangered historic properties. Fast forward two years and the property was one of the stops on the organization’s walking tour of historic landmarks in Wolfeboro. The walking tour was part of this year’s Seven to Save presentation, which took place on October 27 at Wolfeboro’s Town Hall.

Update: The "White Building"

The three historic buildings at Pickering Corner were known in the 1800's as "Bankers Row." Today, these properties are being rejuvenated for new uses and a new era. Learn more about plans for the "White Building" tucked between Pickering House and the building currently housing Keller Williams Realty.

 

Thank you to James Hardie Building Products

When we discovered that the majority of Pickering House’s existing wood siding was rotted, HardiePlank® Lap Siding was our first choice for a replacement. We turned to HardiePlank when we renovated our own 1850’s Wolfeboro home because it looks like wood, yet is far more durable and much lower maintenance.  With the help of Jason Chizmar, our James Hardie Building Products sales representative, the company stepped forward to offer pricing breaks that made the siding financially feasible for Pickering House.
