Pros, this one is for you!

Come and explore the haunted Murdock Whitney and Isaac Morse Houses.

We have some equipment that you're welcome to use, but we expect you will probably want to bring your own. We will provide you with a short history of the properties, answer any questions you may have, and then you're off on your own, free to explore both homes and see what you can find!

We're capping attendance at 15 people, but you will split up between the two houses (32 rooms, plus two basements, so don't worry about bumping into each other unless you want to!)

This is a unique opportunity for a small group event!

Only two dates available - July 28 and November 17.

Tickets are $60 per person.

Click "get tickets" and then choose "Paranormal Ghost Hunts" to book your spot!

Masquerade Madness

Looking for Casino? We're shaking things up a little bit!

This year's annual casino event will be held at the Murdock Whitney House, and we've added a twist!

The event is called Masquerade Madness.

What does that mean for you? Choose your outfit!

This year, the house will be decorated for Halloween and costumes are encouraged!

Should you decided not to wear a costume, you may go in the usual formal attire, BUT you must wear a mask. It's up to you!

As usual, there will be a bar, hors d'oeuvres, and a raffle + silent auction. 

There will also be a costume contest. The cost to enter is $5, and the winner will split the cash prize 50/50 with the WHCC.

Tickets are $25.00 per person. 

Tickets are available by calling Peggy at 561-459-9484 or stopping by the Lavender Leopard at 269 School St.

What: Masquerade Madness
When: Saturday, October 13th, 7:00 PM to Midnight
Where: The Murdock Whitney House, 151 Spring Street, Winchendon, MA
What Do I Wear?: Formal attire with a mask OR a Halloween costume
Why: Because it's the biggest fundraiser we do all year and we need your support! Oh, and because we're decorating the house for Halloween!

From 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM, Shades of Gray, the Civil War Era Camp Band, will be making a special appearance. You may have seen them before at one of our summer pig roasts - they are always lots of fun, and not to be missed! 

Lastly, both houses will be open for tours from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM, so come soak up the ambiance of our historic homes and explore our amazing collection of artifacts.

The Winchendon History and Cultural Center is excited to announce our third escape room, The Toy Maker’s Office is opening on May 4, 2018! 


This room is available to book on Thursday and Friday evenings, Saturdays from 3PM to 9PM, and Sundays from noon to 6PM. 

Winchendon History and Cultural Center
The Isaac Morse House
135 Front Street
Winchendon, MA 01475

Please join us for...

Just another day at the museum... or is it? Unfortunately, things have gone terribly awry, and we need your help!  The Museum Director is away on vacation. One of the volunteers has been trying to hold things together in the Director’s absence, but the pressure was too much. The volunteer went a little berserk trying to get the new exhibit set up in time for the grand opening - a replica of Morton E. Converse's office. He broke a toy rocking horse into pieces – a prized artifact in the museum’s collection – and then locked himself in the bathroom. He refuses to come out and the exhibit is in complete disarray. Can you help us restore order to the museum before the Director returns? 

You have 60 minutes.

You and your teammates are locked inside a room.

Find the clues. Solve the puzzles. Win the game.

Please be aware that this room is located on the second floor and climbing a flight of stairs is required for participation.

This room is also available by special request and for private events. Just send us an email at info@winchendonhistory.com or give us a call at 978-833-3025.

Also, The Moonlight Club - our Secret Society escape room game - is still available to book by special request!

We hope to see you soon!
