The story of Lizzie Borden is a sad and hair-raising tale that lives on through her home that is now a bed and breakfast/museum in Fall River, Massachusetts.
On August 4th, 1892 Andrew Borden and his wife Abby Borden were found brutally murdered in their home with their skulls caved in by the vicious blows of a hatchet. Famously, their youngest daughter, Lizzie, became the main suspect in the murder case as she was the only one around and the first to find them. Furthermore Lizzie was believed to have fiscal and emotional incentives to kill her father and stepmother. During the trial, Lizzie was acquitted of her alleged crimes and later moved out of Fall River in attempt to escape her past.
The Borden house on 92 Second street is now a bed an breakfast and museum that is open to the public year round. Inside the entire crime scene has been recreated and memorabilia from that dismal night can be bought at the gift store in the back. Lizzie's room as well as that of her father and stepmother's are available for stay if one feels brave enough to do so but just a warning: the house is known for its paranormal activities.
