The Wickham House was completed in 1812 and is considered an exceptionally fine example of Federal period domestic architecture. The interior features very fine decorative paintings with classical Greek and Roman themes, which our studio conserved and replicated in the Drawing Room, Dining Room, Library, and Oval Parlor, during the property's restoration. The museum is a National Historic Landmark and the restoration project won the AIA Tower Award 1992 in North Carolina.
