FALL RIVER, Mass.—The house where Lizzie Borden lived out her life after being acquitted of charges that she used an ax to kill her father and stepmother is on the market.

The 14-room Queen Anne Victorian home in Fall River is for sale for $650,000. It is assessed at $313,200, which does not take into account its historical significance.

Owner Robert Dube has owned the home known as Maplecroft since 1980 when he paid $60,000. He has put it on the market several times before, most recently three years ago when he asked $725,000.

The Herald News ( http://bit.ly/HVFJ4t) reports that Borden lived at Maplecroft from 1894 until her death in 1927.

It is not the same house where Andrew and Abby Borden were killed in August 1892.
