It was in this room, on the morning of August 4th 1892, the body of Abby D. Borden was discovered by Bridget Sullivan and the Borden's neighbor, Mrs. Churchill. With it's beautifully carved Eastlake bed and dresser, the room has been meticulously decorated to transport you back to that fateful morning.
John Vinnicum Morse (1833 – 1912) was born in Fall River, Mass., the son of Anthony and Rhody (Morrison) Morse and younger brother to Sarah, mother of Lizzie and Emma.
John arrived unannounced at 92 Second St on Wednesday, August 3rd, and Abby put him in the second floor guestroom, the same room where her body would be found less than 24 hours later.
A witness at the inquest, preliminary trial and final trial of his niece, he provided testimony of his intimate knowledge of events within the Borden household.
