Book Synopsis
The Mistress isn’t a person . . .

. . . she’s a grand old mansion house in Groton, Massachusetts dating back before the last of the thirteen American colonies was established.

Her colorful past includes noteworthy caretakers. She is architecturally significant. She is situated on a working farm. With all this going for her, why is she not basking in glory as a historic house?

What caused her anonymity? Was it an Irish Catholic family? Was it discrimination, prejudice, and town politics? Was it Groton’s Ku Klux Klan activity? Why did 25 years of the selectmen’s minutes mysteriously vanish? Why does the road on which she is located keep disappearing and reappearing on town maps? Whose bodies might be buried nearby? Why were the police looking for information that could be used for an assault on the Mistress?

This book is meticulously documented with 382 footnotes, 27 photographs, 12 detailed maps, and four appendices charting the Mistress’ heritage.
