Pickens Hall was a vaudeville venue at Heuvelton in St. Lawrence County, New York. It was built in 1858 and is a three story, rectangular stone building, 65 feet wide and 74 feet deep. It is an Italianate style building with commercial space on the first floor and office/storage rooms on the second floor. The third floor contains the great hall, which formerly served as a community room and entertainment venue.[2]

It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2004.[1]

In 2007 The Heuvelton Historical Association received a $50,000 state grant[3] to restore Pickens Hall which is now open as Pickens General Store.
