TIMOTHY PICKERING LIBRARY

The Colonel Timothy Pickering Library (1,400 items) was given to the Wenham Museum by the Massachusetts Society for Promoting Agriculture (MSPA), which utilized the museum as its headquarters for many years. The Library contains a number of family histories and genealogies, extensive manuscript material on Wenham history, a complete record of all the early houses in Wenham’s Historic District, books by local authors, and an extensive collection of early town records and Essex County histories. Among the reference books in the collection are many on quilts, dolls, toys, costumes, needlework, antiques, and early American architecture, herbs, and gardens.
