Lizzie Borden's Family Home
(You Can't Make Up Stuff Like This)

Stranger than fiction (part of a series).
Lizzie Borden took an ax...Not only is the house in Fall River, Massachusetts, still standing -- today it's a restored, upscale bed & breakfast inn. With, what else, an ax murder theme. And guided tours. You can even sleep, or try to sleep, in rooms where the bodies were found.

There's more information on the house and lots of photos at the Celebrate Boston website.

Lizzie Borden as in

Lizzie Borden took an axe
And gave her mother forty whacks.
And when she saw what she had done,
She gave her father forty-one??

Macabre but interesting...

No, I haven't stayed there. Just thought it was interesting and unexpected.

Janice said...

Definitely unexpected. Have you read any of the books about the murders? I think Lizzie's sister did it and Lizzie helped cover for her.

Janice, a long time ago I read several books about the case and recall the sister connection you mention. Amazing that the story is still current -- and you can sleep in Mom's bed, too.
