The Pickman House is located on Charter Street in Salem, Massachusetts, behind the Peabody Essex Museum.

These properties form part of the Charter Street Historic District.

The house was restored by Historic Salem[1] in 1969 and purchased by the Peabody Essex Museum in 1983. The Pickman House is not open to the public.

The Pickman House falls into the category of American colonial architecture from the First Period. The style of the large central brick chimney is an excellent example of First Period craftsmanship.
