The real Maplecroft Mansion where Lizzie Borden went after her acquittal of the murders of her father and stepmother, the previous sketch was the super fancy model they used in the series Also sketched in iron gall ink filled Lamy fountain pen. Didn't bother with filling a fountain pen with green ink this time cuz it's not urban sketch season and I don't know how many more sketches like this I'll make atm.
The Maplecroft Mansion, a significant and historically important Queen Anne Victorian located in Fall Rivers' Highlands District. The property was commissioned in 1889 by Charles Allen and sold to Lizzie Borden (and her sister Emma) in 1893 after her acquittal of the murder of her parents, a story and trial which engaged the nation. Ms. Borden lived in Maplecroft until her death on June 1, 1927. This impeccably designed high style Victorian is an art piece that has been painstakingly restored to its original grandeur, with no detail overlooked. This 4000 sq. ft. home features 6 fireplaces, 8 bedrooms, and 3 ½ bathrooms. Details include tin ceilings in the kitchen, coffered ceilings in the parlor, exquisite mantelpieces, walnut wainscoting, custom millwork and inlaid parquet flooring just to name a few. Each room is decorated with accurate period pieces and include accoutrement that speaks to its Borden history. Maplecroft is being offered for sale fully furnished and has a variance to operate as a bed and breakfast. It has been a private residence since it’s restoration, unseen by the public.
