Hi! My name is Laura, and I'm 21 years old, from Westminster, MA.
Becoming a tour guide for the mansion has been a dream of mine since it
was purchased in 2015. While I waited, hoping that eventually, I
might get the position, I hosted trivia and ran escape rooms. I'm also
an artist who's won multiple awards and previously got displayed at
Tufts University, Mount Wachusett Community College, and Anna Maria
College. I'm very excited to have been given this opportunity and
can't wait to meet you all!


My name is Heather and I've been interested in the paranormal and history for as long as I can remember. I've always believed that it's very important to keep history alive and I feel so lucky to be able to share with everyone the history of this incredible house and the stories of the people who have been here (and still may be here ), as well as the experiences people are continuing to have! Hope to see you all there and I can't wait to show you around!
