Pickens Hall Re-opens
Two down and one to go.
Pickens Hall General Store in downtown Heuvelton is once again open, with a renovated second floor.
For the past 12 years, members of the Heuvelton Historical Association have been workling to restore the stone building, which dates from 1858. Now, only the third floor is left to fix.
Business was brisk Friday when 7 News reporter John Friot visited the store. There was a steady flow of customers seeking everything from fresh cheese curd to hand-made goods, furniture and crafts by the Amish .
"We just need to keep getting word out there that there's some neat things happening in the building," said David Kingsley, the president of the Historical Association.
"It's a neat project to be able to offer both retail space and museum space and performance space, all in one building," he said.
In order to finish the restoration, the Historical Association needs another $130,000.
