On June 20, 1893, after only ninety minutes deliberating a jury acquitted Lizzie Borden of the double ax murder of her father and stepmother. considered one of the most famous murders in history, Lizzie's life, trial, and death has been explored more than a few times.

After being acquitted, Lizzie and her sister Emma moved to a three-story mansion she named Maplecroft in Fall River, Massachusetts, and despite being the most unpopular resident would live out the remaining days of her life in this enormous Victorian home until she fell ill and passed away on June, 1st, 1927 of pneumonia.

Life in Fall River seemed to just continue for Lizzie Borden after the double homicide of her father and stepmother for which she was suspected, tried, and acquitted for. Despite public speculation surrounding the case and court proceedings, Lizzie was pretty active in her community, especially towards animal causes.




Many believe it to be haunted, and one spirit is supposedly that of Lizzie Borden herself. Maplecroft, like Lizzie, and the countless legends surrounding her, has become a fascination of sorts among paranormal enthusiasts and history buffs alike.

As of this writing, Maplecroft appears to be back on the market for $890,000. It was previously planned that the mansion would serve as another Lizzie Borden bed & breakfast or attraction, in an addition to the well-established Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast Museum, housed in the victorian style home where the double homicide took place in 1892.
