Picket House Museum Open House

Living History

We invite you to the home that was built in 1856 for United States Army Captain George Pickett and his family. The home was donated by Hattie Strother in 1936 to become a museum. The Strotherís lived in the home for 47 years working as a tailor and a dress maker. View the restored kitchen and see the collection of Sad Irons sitting on the wood burning stove. The irons are part of a collection donated to the museum. The heavy twisted metal handles of the sad irons could have been used by Hattie Strother and her family. Free admission but donations are welcome as we need to raise funds to address the dry rot on the windows on the front porch. Info: 360-733-5873 or email
