The history of the notorious Bishop family of Litchfield, N.H. has been known for generations but spoken of only quietly and behind closed doors. In 1954 Encee Bishop the patriarch of this unusual family built a stately plantation home along the banks of the Merrimack River. The Bishop family went largely unnoticed as they had stayed to themselves and were rarely seen in the community or at local events. This very secretive family was hardly ever spotted during the day preferring to be most active after sundown, an unusual pattern to see in Litchfield's farming community.
What little is now known about the Bishops primarily was learned through word of mouth by and the observation of neighbors that they seemed devoted to dark rituals and appeared fanatical about commemorating the passage of Halloween each year. When October would arrive, the Bishops' property began humming with activity after sundown and well into the early morning hours, high pitched and sometimes muffled sounds could be heard sporadically coming from the direction of home and surrounding property. It wasn't until the mid-1960's that the community began to speculate horrible things related to the Bishop family even though very few had ever encountered family members in person.
Around this time numerous people began to go missing from the Litchfield community and it wasn't long before neighbors began to express feverish concern about their own safety and threatening the Bishops with some connection to the missing men and women. With no evidence to tie them to the disappearances, the Bishops were never confronted directly. Over the next 3 years the reports of missing people across New England multiplied to nearly 2 dozen though it was unclear whether they were connected.
Finally, in October of 1972 two carloads of teenagers went missing after a local dance and two days later the burned out cars were discovered adjacent to the Bishops' property. Fearing the worst, and with the zealous demands of the people of Litchfield, the local authorities arrested and imprisoned the entire family but there has been speculation that not all of the family members were caught. Although the property has been abandoned since they've been taken into custody, strange and fearful sounds continue to accompany the riverside property in Litchfield even to this day. Moreover, not all the remains of the missing people have been discovered and new reports have been filed every year on behalf of people who have disappeared after venturing onto the Bishops land.
This fall - the Bishops return to Litchfield, N.H.
