Pickford’s House Museum is a Grade I listed building situated in Derby. It is named after architect Joseph Pickford who built it as his family home in 1770.
When Pickford died he left the house to Reverend Joseph Pickford who had the house extended and divided into two properties.. He left the house to his cousin William Pickford in his will in 1844. William promptly mortgaged the house and by 1850 it was sold to William Evans
His son Sir Thomas William Evans sold it in 1879 to Frederick Ward who sold it to William Curgenven, the first of a number of surgeons to own it.
In 1977 it was upgraded from Grade II to Grade I It was purchased in 1982 by Derby City Council. Pickford’s House has been run by Derby Museums Trust since October 2012.
