The building at 80, 82 and 84 Old Kingston Rd. in the Village of Pickering was originally a hotel known as Head's Hotel.
Records indicate that Head's Hotel, owned and operated by Peter Head, was in existence in 1850. Peter Head operated the hotel into the 1880s and was then succeeded by innkeepers Andrew Mason, Thomas Major and D. O'Conner.


In approximately 1874, the hotel was purchased by Edmund Wright who remodelled the hotel and transformed it into a store and residence, the residence being the unique octagon-shaped portion on the east side.


Today Pickering Village is filled with a variety of novelty shops, clothing stores, Tea shop, bakery and café and much, much more…….definitely worth the drive to see a treasure chest of Merchandise and historical ambience at Couture Consignments.
