MaplecroftpaintedFor many summers the For Sale sign has been up in front of the famous address on French Street, Lizzie Borden’s beloved and last home.  Over the past few weeks, an interested buyer has made trips to Fall River and at last the house, owned for many years by Robert Dube, has transferred ownership.  The Fall River Herald News broke the story this afternoon at this link.  http://www.heraldnews.com/article/20141121/NEWS/141128850

The house will operate as a Bed & Breakfast and it looks like exciting times ahead for the old Queen Anne house. The photo above was taken recently after a fresh coat of cream-colored paint was applied. The new owners should be taking possession after the holidays.  The house did operate briefly as a B&B some years ago. It will be fun to watch what the months ahead will bring.
