The renovation of Pickering House and its attached barn has been a labor of love, not only for Peter and Patty Cooke, but also for the entire Wolfeboro community. Since February 2016, when the Cookes purchased the property and saved it from likely destruction, they received a steady outpouring of support ranging from thank you letters, to offers of donated services and construction materials.

A Vendor Program was created to recognize and thank the generous businesses and craftspeople who are providing discounts on materials and services to help give Pickering House a new lease on life.
