Olde Susquehanna House is a family-owned retail store established in 1984
In 1983 Raymond & Barbara Wickard purchased the property at 162 York Road, Carlisle, PA, with the idea of converting the charming old house into a home decor and gift shop. Out of this vision was born Olde Susquehanna House (OSH). In December of its opening year, OSH began its humble beginnings in one room when a Christmas bazaar was held to showcase Barbara's dried flower arrangements and wreaths. In 1984, daughters Kurin and Karen Wickard joined the business venture and the shop opened full-time. The family worked together to build a business which has become recognized in Carlisle, as well as surrounding areas. OSH has the distinction of being one of the oldest gift shops in Carlisle, Pa, with floor-to-ceiling quality merchandise.
The primary focus of the store is country primitive decor. We also sell Vera Bradley, Lang, Park Designs, Natural Life, American handmade folk art, greeting cards, flags, seasonal décor, antiques, lighting supplies, early American reproduction lighting, candles, braided rugs.
