‘In Our Own Backyard’: Showcasing Fall River

Wednesday, August 4

Lizzy Borden HousePRIME TIME Travel is very excited to announce the second of our ‘In Our Own Backyard’ series, where we showcase hidden gems found close to home. These ‘drive-yourself’ events feature local places, sometimes  overlooked, that make our area such a wonderful place to live!

Join PRIME TIME in Fall River on Wednesday, August 4th on the 129th anniversary of that fateful day when “Lizzie Borden took an axe and gave her mother forty whacks. When she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one”!

The day will begin with lunch at The Cove Restaurant in Fall River. Overlooking Mount Hope Bay, The Cove offers stunning views and mouthwatering food. After lunch, we’ll board a trolley to the historic Lizzie Borden House for a narrated tour of the house. We’ll see where each member of the Borden family roomed, learn of their daily routines, witness where the gruesome murders took place and hear how the day of the infamous event played out.

Following our house tour, we’ll re-board our trolley and meet our step on guide, author and former employee of the Lizzie Borden House, Shelley Dziedzic. Shelley will point out various Lizzie Borden-related sites throughout Fall River such as the church Lizzie attended and the mansion where she lived the rest of her days after being acquitted of killing her father and stepmother. (Perhaps Shelley will even tell us about some of her own experiences in the house!)

Our day will end with a tour of the Borden family’s final resting spot, Oak Grove Cemetery. Shelley will give a brief explanation of the plot and some nearby graves of people involved in the case.
