Fall River Historical Society

Hosted in an 1843/1871 French Empire building, the Fall River Historical Society structure features incredible period interiors and the largest concentration of 19th century polychromatic stenciling in Southeastern Massachusetts.

Lovely terraced gardens, statues, Victorian parterres and fountain adorn its grounds.

The mansion was once a stop on the Underground Railroad.

Its exhibits include period costumes and accessories, decorative items, furniture, paintings, photos, sculptures and manuscripts. You’ll also find the world’s largest collection of artifacts pertaining to the Lizzie Borden murders, as this town is where the famous crimes occurred in 1892.

The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as part of Fall River’s Historic Highlands District.
