Myth Busting Lizzie Borden: Facts on the Life of an Enigmatic Woman

September 7, 2019

Lizzie Borden still fascinates. She intrigues us mostly because, even after 127 years, we know very little about her private life. After her acquittal for the murder of her father and stepmother, she remained in Fall River, Massachusetts, and spoke to no one publicly about the case ever again. And yet, there have been more than 30 so-called nonfiction accounts of her to appear in print. What exactly do we know about Lizzie A. Borden? And how has her particular story become more urban legend than authentic narrative? This talk examines the Borden mythology with special emphasis on the handless hatchet, presented at trial as a possible murder weapon, and manufactured by the Underhill Company in Nashua, New Hampshire.

Stefani Koorey, Ph.D. is a Borden expert and was the publisher and editor of The Hatchet: A Journal of Lizzie Borden and Victorian America, which was in publication for ten years. She has been featured in the Discovery Channel’s recent documentary “Lizzie Borden Had an Axe,” and lectures far and wide on the subject.
