6. Lizzy Borden’s Home, Fall River, Mass.
The Maplecroft name of the estate alone puts goose bumps on the skin of the neighbors that live around the home where accused axe-murderer Lizzie Borden, the O.J. Simpson of the 19th century, spent her final days. Many were the day that Lizzie would be outside of her residence chopping wood furiously on the front lawn while she glared menacingly at her neighbors. Lizzy bought this home after she was acquitted a year after her parent’s brutal murders and lived there until the day she died. It was thought that she was having an affair with the maid Bridget Sullivan and was caught by her parents, which led to the horrific chopping. Since Lizzie died in 1927 the house has been through multiple owners over the years, finally ending up in the hands of Robert Dube.
Dube has tried multiple times to sell the estate and he’s chopped his asking price from $725,000 down to $650,000.
Built circa 1889, the home has 14 rooms, original parquet floors, tin ceilings and seven fireplaces.
