History of the House

The house was built by Frank E. Anderson, a resident of Nashua since the 1880’s, who was President of the Estabrook-Anderson Shoe Company, located in a factory between Palm and Pine Streets in Nashua. At its peak, the Company produced more than 10,000 pairs of shoes per day and had annual sales in excess of two million dollars. In 1925, the house was sold to Francis P. Murphy, who was the 74th governor of NH in 1936 and then again in 1938 and later went on to found WMUR radio and television. The House was later sold to the Manchester Convent of the Sisters of Mercy in 1947 and used by Mount St Mary’s Seminary.
