Visit To Lizzie Borden House

“Lizzie Borden and her family lived at 92 Second Street in the city of Fall River, Massachusetts. From 1874 to 1892, the house was the property of Andrew Borden, Lizzie’s father, who was a member of high society. After Lizzie’s trial and acquittal of murdering her father and stepmother with an axe, Lizzie and her sister Emma did not return to the house; instead, Lizzie bought another house located at 7 French Street that she named Maplecroft. Lizzie lived there until her death on June 1, 1927.”

Stopped by the famouse Lizzie Borden house which is now a Bed & Breakfast. Visitors can spend the night or just take a tour. The area is now more commercial than residential and I got the feeling that the city grew up around the house. I believe the Falls River district court is directly across the street. Parking wasn’t hard and there is meters right in front of the house. The house looks to be very well kept but after I got there I just didn’t have the time or energy to take a tour. Maybe next trip?
