About the Picker Building

The Picker Building is an old cotton mill building located alongside the Nashua River among the historic mill yard in Nashua NH. What was once a textile and cotton mill has recently turned into a blossoming creative community for artists, artisans, small business owners and other creative themed companies.
.
The building was built between 1861 and 1865 as part of the Nashua Manufacturing Co. empire. It gets its name – the Picker Building – from its role in the textile process back in the millyard’s heyday.

.
Workers in the building picked seeds and debris from cotton bales before the bales were dispatched to other parts of the industrial plant.
.
We welcome visitors to come visit all the creative talent that is located inside the Picker Building – from Jewelry to Stained Glass to Pottery to Photography – there is much to see and discover.
.
The Picker Building is located at 99 Factory Street Extension, located behind the Clocktower Apartments complex.
