You Can Own Lizzie Borden’s Massachusetts Home

Looking for a home in and near  Fall River, Massachusetts? The NY Times highlights several properties including a 1889 house with eight bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms that was owned and occupied by Lizzie Borden after she was acquitted of murdering her father and stepmother.

While not the same house in which the murders took place (that’s now a bed and breakfast for morbid ghost-hunting ghouls),  this Queen Anne Victorian is in the Highlands historic district, an upscale section that was known as the Hill when Lizzie Borden and her sister, Emma Borden, bought the house in 1893 and named it Maplecroft. Almost completely restored with the help of historians, the home is being sold with all of its period-appropriate furnishings and decorative objects. 

Taxes are only five grand. Shit, maybe I’ll move to Mass.?
