Artist's Description

some of the history from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, also my own comments from my extensive reading on the subject and my visit to her home.

Lizzie Andrew Borden (July 19, 1860 – June 1, 1927) was an American woman who was tried and acquitted in the 1892 axe murders of her father Andrew and stepmother Abby in Fall River, Massachusetts. The case was a cause célèbre throughout the United States and despite her acquittal, Borden remains a notorious figure in American folklore. No one else was charged, and speculation on the case continues to this day.

the home is a Bread and Breakfast now and has tours of the home during the day where the tour guide will show you the family’s rooms, where the bodies were found etc.

this downstairs sitting room is where Andrew’s body was found on a couch -duplicate of what is there now [see my photo above]

the home is definitely haunted – the guide had many stories, and Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures as well as other paranormal teams have visited the home. My daughter and I are sensitives and felt something very unsettling there ourselves. It is hard to believe people actually sleep overnight there and some wish to sleep on the floor where Abby’s body [the stepmother] was found.

previous photos I posted on RedBubble that are original in color are the front stairs of the house and the Lizzie’s sister Emma’s room which has one of Lizzie’s dresses on a manaquin form by the dresser. See clickable links of these photos below.
