Formed more than 80 years ago, the Winchendon Historical Society occupies and guides tours through a towering, white, 160-year-old Victorian mansion located in the middle of the Winchendon settlement, affectionately known as Toy Town for its toy-making industry. Inside these palatial confines, explore 22 antique-furniture-filled rooms, all with the original wood molding—including cherry, mahogany, quarter-sawn oak, southern yellow pine, and walnut—and leaded or stained-glass windows. The historical society's extensive collection of period memorabilia occupies two full rooms with Civil War artifacts and fills a room with hundreds of archival maps, which depict Winchendon, surrounding towns, and where Atlantis is hiding in the north Atlantic Ocean. If the house's enormity becomes overly daunting, buffs can take the guided tours—starting June 5—offered Wednesdays and Sundays and included in the cost of admission.
