About Fall River
map
The city of Fall River was founded in 1803 as a town and then incorporated in 1854 as a city. Fall River is located in Bristol County about 50 miles from Boston. The city's name originated from a Native American name "Quequchan" which means falling water.

To bring tourism to its full potential in Fall River there are many places of interest. In the city you will find the U.S.S Memorial, Fall River Heritage State Park, and the Old Colony and Fall River Rail Road Museum.

During the Halloween season Fall River also has numerous haunted attractions including the Factory of Terror or the Asylum of Horror. The Lizzie Borden Museum is also a bed and breakfast where you will learn the story of the murder mystery that was never solved. Stay if you dare!!
