THE OLIVER ESTATE Historians of colonial New England architecture have traditionally viewed eighteenth century Plymouth County as a rural backwater of poor subsistence farmsteads and small vernacular dwelling houses. An analysis of the estate and ironworks constructed by the Oliver family in Middleborough contradicts this notion.
The sophisticated industrial and domestic structures that made up this industrial plantation illustrate the family’s economic prosperity and social position within their community. Developed between 1744 and 1775, the site originally incorporated a vast water powered ironworks and two mansion houses built by Judge Peter Oliver and his son, Peter Oliver Jr. This complex is significant for historical, technological and architectural reasons.
As one of colonial America's first industrial entrepreneurs, Judge Oliver used his influence in the provincial government of Massachusetts to garner royal contracts for his iron works and brought Middleborough’s economy into the international arena. The rolling and slitting mill built by the Judge in 1750 was one of only two similar works in the Province of Massachusetts.
The Olivers used the wealth generated by their ironworks to build two significant gentry mansions during the third quarter of the eighteenth century. These domestic structures exhibit a level of sophistication which set them apart from local and regional building traditions.
During the final, tumultuous years before the American Revolution, Oliver and his family were branded as loyalists and fled to Canada and then eventually to England. The family’s estate in Middleborough was confiscated and auctioned by the newly independent state of Massachusetts and two inventories of the family’s personal possessions and property were made.
Originally incorporating two dwelling houses laid out in a landscaped park, the estate was described by Governor Hutchinson as “one of the loveliest spots in all his majesty’s colony.” As it exists today, the property developed by the Oliver family in the eighteenth century is a mere shadow of its former glory. Oliver Hall, Judge Oliver's residence was burned by the patriot mob in 1778, and no trace of the magnificent mansion or its landscaped park survives. Thankfully, Peter Oliver Jr.’s house did not share the fate of the Hall. This elegant Georgian mansion remains as a symbol of the architectural legacy of the Oliver family.
Karen Tatro, a Certified Spirit Medium
Karen Tatro lives in NH with her husband Steve and children, Nicole and Garrett. From the time she was a small child, Karen has had a deep connection with the spirit world. She could see, hear and feel the presence of spirits and knew that, beyond her intellect; the Divine Spirit world existed and was all around. Growing up as a sensitive, she often describes her life as having, "one foot on Earth and one in the Clouds". Karen embraces and shares her abilities with people for the purpose of inspiration, wisdom, education, and healing.
Tatro’s credentials and abilities in the paranormal field have leaded her to appear on two national TV shows dealing with paranormal content: Syfy Channel's Ghost Hunters TAPS, and The Biography Channel’s My Ghost Story. WMUR Channel 9 news recently interviewed and filmed Karen while she and her partner investigated the Ellacoya Country Store in Gilford, NH in 2014. She has also been featured on several New Hampshire radio stations, including WOKQ 95.7 where she was interviewed regarding her involvement with the famously “caught on video” ghost at the small Gilford store.
Tatro is also a published author of a children's book, “I’m A Super Hero ~ I’m not Afraid of Ghosts!” It is a wonderful book for families who have children of all ages that are sensitive and afraid of their bedrooms at night; afraid of ghosts and things they might sense but cannot see or quite understand. She is a paranormal & Spiritual Event Host for the general public, which allows them to explore these amazing locations and their own intuitive abilities and interests in the paranormal field. She also travels throughout the NH, and Southern MA holding private mediumship galleries in private homes for a small gathering of guests. She has an office in Keene NH for personal readings, workshops and gatherings for the general public. Karen is currently working on a TV Pilot with an NBC producer featuring her work as a medium.

"I’m an intuitive, paranormal investigator who has been investigating alongside my mom for 10 years. I’ve investigated a variety of different locations from private homes to many famously haunted places such as the Lizzie Borden house and the S.K Pierce Mansion. I’ve been featured on the show My Ghost Story for my paranormal work. I’ve investigated the Conjuring House multiple times over the past year, and I’m always intrigued to return and learn more. I also run a home bakery, Colie’s Kitchen, in Dover, NH where I deliver and ship a variety of baked goods. My website for ordering information is www.colies-kitchen.com. You can follow along my paranormal and foodie adventures on my TikTok, @spookychick123."
Jim and Teresa Welcome
Jim and Teresa Welcome have been investigating with Karen and Nicole over a span of many years. The couple began investigating with their two daughters, often calling the trips the family takes around New England “family time,” since each of them have all had experiences with the spirit world and enjoy exploring the paranormal world. They are incredibly fun to be around and have insightful ways in which they communicate with spirits, often using a combination of tools and intuitive sight.
Welcome aboard Angie!! Angie has been an incredible colleague, working with me on my private cases as my research assistant. Her work has been invaluable to me!
