Here’s a chance to get a peek inside Andrew Jennings house; Jennings was on Lizzie Borden’s defense team at her Trial and had been a family attorney for many years.
This video was on Craigslist for Fall River rentals
The video only shows the second floor where the bedrooms and study were in Jennings time. As with so many lovely Victorians in Fall River, this one has been renovated for apartments. But I always like looking inside them and do every time I visit Fall River and rentals are available. I love the hardwood floors, intricate woodwork, tile work and stained glass windows so common to these stately homes.
I did a blog post a while back about Lizzie’s neighbors and who would have visited her, featuring this house.
The house sits on the southeast corner of French and June, just a couple blocks down from “Maplecroft”. When I look up at the stone steps leading to the front door I usually think about Marshall Hilliard and Mayor Coughlin who, arriving by carriage after the Inquest, came to inform Jennings that Lizzie Borden was to be arrested.
