Summary of Claims: It was built by Elisha Murdock, son of Ephraim Murdock and founder in 1834 of E. Murdock and Company on River Street, Waterville. E. Murdock and Company was the second oldest industry in Winchendon and became the oldest and largest wooden-ware manufacturing establishment in the country. Elisha Murdock was also the first president of Winchendon Savings Bank, chartered on March 31, 1854. It remained the home of members of one of the most successful and longest-standing families in Winchendon. The Murdock-Whitney House is now the home of the Winchendon Historical Society and one of the town’s most beautiful and historic mansions, with its Colonial Revival redesign and Victorian elements.
Claims are of an old woman that haunts the Murdock-Whitney House. She is very protective of her home and wanders the hallways, and is especially averse to allowing people into her bedroom. Her footsteps are heard throughout the house, including the mysterious third floor, in which the staff refuses to enter by themselves.
