Make Visits to Children’s Museum, Historical Landmarks and Parks in Fall River MA
Although Fall River have moved along from being an industrial and textile center of the country, much of its culture and changes are well documented and reflected in many of the city’s historical landmarks, centers and museums. The city’s motto has always been ‘Wel’ll Try’ and this was an after-effect of the Great Fire back in 1843 and some residents have also fondly referred to Fall River as ‘The Scholarship City’.
When it comes to important landmarks, two historical tourist attractions will automatically come to mind – Lizzie Borden’s former home and Battleship Cove. However, thanks to a huge influx of immigrants from Europe (due to the city’s burgeoning textile industry), there is a rich Portuguese culture and a historic soccer history in the city. Fall River won the American Cup back in five times in quick succession. There are many other landmarks to check out in Fall River and it includes sites like The Marine Museum, Fall River Historical Society, Old Colony and Fall River Railroad Museum, Kennedy Park, The First Congregational Church, Columbia Street and many more.
