Lizzie Borden House In Fall River Up For Sale


FALL RIVER, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Calling all haunted house fanatics — The Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast Museum in Fall River is for sale.

The 19th century Massachusetts home hit the market for $2 million.

It is historically known for the brutal death of Lizzie Borden’s stepmother and father. Lizzie was suspected and tried for killing the couple with a hatchet, but was later acquitted of the crime.

This case is one of the nation’s most infamous unsolved mysteries. The house is one of the most visited tourist attractions of New England and—during a normal year— is visited by people from all over the globe.

The six-bedroom home is still available to the public for guided tours and remains close to how it looked in the 1890s. Tour guides and other employees of the bed and breakfast said that they hope to keep the doors open to the public after the home is purchased.

Following the death of her parents, Lizzie Borden eventually moved from the 2nd Street home into a nearby home on French Street, known as “Maplecroft.” The historic seven-bedroom “Maplecroft” mansion is also on the market for $890,000 and can be purchased with the 2nd Street home.
