I posted this piece over 3 years ago about Lizzie Borden being ingrained in the identity of Fall River and how she should be embraced by the city and its people. The Fall River Historical Society, through generous donations and a state grant, has taken a giant leap forward in this regard by creating an exciting 13 minute video promoting the FRHS.
This video is one of the best promo videos I’ve ever seen. Wonderful graphics, fast pace, great use of artifacts and artsy visuals. The first several minutes are all about the Lizzie Borden murders with great use of crime scene photographs and the (now) Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast Museum. Curators Michael Martins and Dennis Binette speak about recent new findings – revelations – in the case and address certain artifacts debunking long standing myths about the murder and our Miss Lizzie. Makes you wanna jump up and go there.
