Excitement is building all around town as Maplecroft is preparing to open its doors to the public.  Important safety features, porch renovations, and other structural projects and improvements are underway while enthusiastic devotees of the Borden case are counting the days until they might see with their own eyes the place where Miss Borden spent the rest of her life after her acquittal in 1893.  The hope is that it shall not be much longer- perhaps three or four weeks until this Victorian gem of French Street will be receiving visitors.

Oh my!  Is that Miss Lizzie! ?
