Last summer was my first trip to the Lizzie Borden House in Fall River. Diane & her kids are pretty interested in paranormal stuff and they really wanted to take the tour, so we headed down there after Fort Phoenix. I already featured pics of the place in my blog posts from last summer HERE, HERE and HERE. Last year I tried not to shoot with flash but was unhappy with my photos so I pretty much reshot almost everything, but I'm only going to post the highlights from this batch. Oh yeah, last summer my camera went all wonky and I'd gotten a blinding headache. This year, my camera defaulted back to the original date of January 1, 2005 and in one room I had a very quick but weird dizzy spell and feeling like I needed to sit down but it passed as quickly as it hit me. Most of you are my Facebook friends, and the complete set of pics is posted over there.
Replica of Mr. & Mrs. Borden's skulls
And a photo of the actual skulls.
I was very drawn to this picture which appears to have Mother of Pearl inlay.
Mr. B, post whacking.
I took a lot of mirror shots. I didn't see anything otherworldly in any of my pics, unfortunately.
Unless you count Adam & Logan as 'otherworldly'.
Couldn't resist posting this one again. There is no way you'd ever get me to stay in this place overnight, and especially not in Lizzie's room with this doll in the cabinet.
Pictures of Mr. Borden, and his first wife, holding Lizzie's older sister, Emma. The first Mrs. Borden died when Lizzie was 2.
Di & the kidz.
I took this pic for Russell and I also got him one of the golf balls, which says, ' keep hacking away'. He was somewhat amused by it, but I think it creeps him out.
