There’s been progress over at Salem’s timber-frame project on Derby Wharf. Since I last wrote about the Pedrick Store House, much of the two-story, six-bay structure has been raised. It still awaits the rafters and ridge. A close look reveals where the more than 200-year-old, hand-hewn timbers have been patched as part of the National Park Service’s conservation efforts. Despite a little twisting here and there, the structure appears remarkably square overall. Stop by and take a look.
Also, if you're free Saturday, October 4 at 1:00 or 3:00 pm attend a timber framing demonstration on the Wharf.
