Jill's photos from her trip to the Lizzie Borden House, Fall River, MA- Summer 2019



Floor Plan of the 2nd Floor- To enter Emma's bedroom, you had to go through Lizzie's room. The door from Lizzie's room into her father and Abby's room was locked, with her bed in front of the door.  
Abby was found murdered in the Guest Room.
