Emma's bedroom has a queen size bed and may be combined with Lizzie's room to form a suite to sleep up to four people comfortably.
Emma Lenora Borden was born to Andrew & Sarah on March 1, 1851. She was 12 yrs old when her mother died, and in making a deathbed promise to her, promised to always watch over little Lizzie.
On the day of the murders Emma was 15 miles away in Fairhaven, MA visiting her friend Helen Brownell. It was here that she received the telegram from Dr. Bowen informing her of the killings and urging her back to Fall River.
Emma showed nothing but the strongest support for her sister during the trial and believed in Lizzie's innocence until the day of her death. She testified at Lizzie's inquest and was a star witness for the defense at the final trial in June 1893.
