Fall River Historical Society

The Fall River Historical Society (FRHS), the oldest cultural institution in Fall River, Massachusetts, is housed in a French Second Empire mansion that was once an Underground Railroad station.  Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the structure features a magnificent period interior, while our beautiful grounds with Victorian gardens provide a lush and memorable venue for functions such as weddings and cocktail parties.

Visitors enjoy our first-rate Museum Gift Shop, our annual Holiday Open House, and The Easton Tea Room, a popular spot for parties, meetings, and children’s events.  Our exhibits include the world’s largest collection of artifacts pertaining to Lizzie Borden and the Borden murder case, among them the alleged murder weapon and original crime scene photos.
