HERE’S AN UPDATE AS OF 9-14-17 FROM THE FALL RIVER HERALD NEWS
Here’s more on the sale of Maplecoft with some good images of the interior and other related Borden case images. The article is full of errors in respect to what was original in Lizzie’s time in terms of furniture. The bathroom shown is actually in the attic and was the maid’s bathroom, and that is not an original sink. The only original wallpaper is in the dining room. One cannot get a real sense of Lizzie’s library (with her inlaid mahogony desk) as it’s been altered to be a bedroom. Actually, when one is in the basement it is the closest one feels to Lizzie’s time. (I’ve been in the house many times, first in 1992 and several times between then and 2015 when Bob Dube’ owned it).
I have about a dozen short videos Kristee Bates sent me showing the various rooms of the house during the renovations. I’ll be glad to share if you email me. It’s the last chance to actually see what it looked like inside before The Big Change.
