A must for anyone interested in the Borden case, this unique event starts with a guided tour of the FRHS led by Curator Michael Martins or Assistant Curator Dennis A. Binette, authors of the award-winning book Parallel Lives: A Social History of Lizzie A. Borden and Her Fall River and leading authorities on the life and trial of Lizzie Borden. You’ll see the world’s largest collection of Borden murder mystery artifacts — the alleged murder weapon, original crime scene photos, Lizzie Borden’s personal possessions, and much more.
But what really sets our tour apart is the quality of the information that we share. “Absolutely fascinating” … “Amazing” … “A great experience!” … these are comments from some of our recent visitors.

Guests will also take a guided tour though the house at 92 Second Street where the infamous murders took place, visit Lizzie Borden’s grave, and take a drive by Maplecroft, Lizzie’s home for many years following her release from jail. The tour price, including a step-on guide and High Tea in Easton Tea Room, is $50.
