Very interesting first hand experience of a historical murder mystery. Takes about an hour and is well worth the time.

We stayed a night and it was very interesting. Our guide, Sue, gave us the tour, talked about the family, history, the murders, and the paranormal. After; we sat and tried to communicate with the spirits. She spent a couple of hours with us. After that she left and because of a snow storm, we were the only living spirits... More

Our tour guide Richard was a natural storyteller who led us from room to room laying out the background of the Borden family relationships and what happened the day of the murder, what led up to it, and the aftermath. It is a bright and attractive Victorian house, not a dark and gloomy space. There are three flights of stairs,... More

In October they have actors and actresses from the period of time when the murders took place, posing as Lizzie, her father, stepmother and housekeeper. You will enjoy the tour of the actual house.

Immediately upon walking into the Lizzie Borden house I got a terrible feeling in my throat. My companions felt nauseous & had head aches. If you like the macabre, you must go to Lizzie's house. After stop by the Fall River Historical society & the cemetery where all of Lizzie's family is buried.

I had looked forward to visiting this attraction for such a long time, and it didn't disappoint! Our tour guide was very friendly and informative. He seemed quite knowledgeable on the history (as he should be) and was even able to give his theories. The house seems quite well preserved in some ways, though it is a functioning B&B, so... More

Visit the famous house of Lizzie Borden in Fall River. Step back in time to see where the gruesome murders took place. We took one of the tours that explain the horrors that happened here. Not a passerby and not for the meek. Check online for the tour times and details. Dare to ask about staying overnight in one of... More
