Moody Edson Shattuck, founder of the M.E. Shattuck Cigar & Tobacco Company, was born in Waterville, Vermont on May 9, 1835. In 1858 he arrived in Worcester, Massachusetts and purchased a cigar store in the Lincoln House block, moving to the Walker Building two years later. Over the next several decades he would continue to develop his cigar business. At one time, it was one of the largest in New England.

Moody Shattuck married Helen Augusta Prouty on January 12, 1863. He built the house at 768 Main Street in 1885. Moody Shattuck died April 10, 1892. His wife remained in the house after his death. Mrs. Shattuck died in 1907. Both are buried at the Worcester Rural Cemetery.
