Back in the spring of 2015, Kristee Bates, former owner of Maplecroft in Fall River, was busy with restorations in preparation for turning it into a Bed and Breakfast. She sent me many short videos of her progress, however, she sold the property before going operational. Now, five years later, it is being sold again. Lizzie Borden lived in this house for the full second half of her life – from 1893 to 1927. (She died a few days after Charles Lindberg crossed the Atlantic.) Anyway, when viewing the interior being gutted, altered, stripped, painted, dressed up, modified, and prepped for showing – let’s peek behind the curtains.
You can view 12 of these very short videos posted on my Facebook Page by clicking HERE
or the individual videos as shown below, however, the quality is inferior. Please be patient while the videos load – takes about 15 seconds.
The final result of the restoration can be viewed HERE. (Click an image and take a tour.)
