Below is a video explaining how I became interested in Lizzie Borden and my 45 year pursuit of this most compelling, unsolved classic crime. Revealed in this 16-minute “Special Feature” from Ric Rebelo’s documentary, “Lizbeth, A Victorian Nightmare” I detail how I believe she committed the murders.

Hello, my name is Faye Musselman and I live in the Arizona high desert of Payson, by way of Portland, Oregon, by way of Long Beach, California by way of Honolulu, Hawaii, where I was born.
If you’ve stumbled across this blog, I hope you will enjoy in the musings, images, and perspectives as much as I enjoy sharing them. As a writer, scholar and collector of the infamous Lizzie Borden case of Fall River, MA (1892), I have spent over 40 years collecting rare books, journals, letters, photographs and memorabilia on this most compelling case. I like to say: “Some people play golf – I do Lizzie.”

My first read on the case was Victoria Lincoln’s A Private Disgrace, and my first visit inside 92 Second Street (when it was numbered 230) was in 1978. For the next 15 years, I traveled to Fall River doing research and meeting with long time residents. In 1992, I was a presenter at the Lizzie Borden Centennial Conference in Fall River. Since 1998, I have stayed at the Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast two to three times a year, often serving as tour guide and night manager.
I’ve lectured at University campuses, women’s groups, genealogical societies, civic clubs and fraternal organizations, and libraries conducting multi-media presentations on Lizzie Borden and Fall River’s history in California, Oregon, Arizona and Massachusetts.
I am the creator of the Lizzie Borden board game: “Journey to Maplecroft” and have produced several research and reference materials in both print and CD formats, some of which are available at the Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast.
Since images get all over the internet anyway – go ahead and snatch mine if you like. But if you include it in a story, blog, Twitter, whatever, just state where you got it. Thanks.
