Pickett House Holiday Open House


Welcome to The Holiday Open House on Sunday December 9, 2018 to raise funds for the Pickett House Museum at 910 Bancroft Street, Bellingham. Refreshments and music from Blaine Ukulele Group will greet you from 1 to 4 pm as you enter the home filled with Christmas Decorations. This is the oldest wooden structure in its original location in the State of Washington. U.S. Army Captain Pickett, with his 9th infantry, was ordered to Bellingham in 1856. He lived in this home till he resigned his position to return to his family in Virginia. Dry rot has started to cause a problem with the front porch windows and our fundraising is to take care of this condition. Tickets are $10 and will be available at the door or from members of Hattie Strother Chapter of The International Questers. Donations are greatly appreciated. For More information, either call 360-733-5873 or email
