A Brief History: The Lizzie Borden house is located on 92 Second St. Fall River, MA. It is best known for the gruesome and unsolved axe murders of Andrew and Abby Borden, on August 4, 1892. Prior to the murders, Lizzie lived in the home with her father, stepmother, her sister, Emma and their maid Bridget Sullivan. It has been reported that Lizzie had found her parents bludgeoned to death, and the murderer had ran off. The murder weapon was found hidden in the basement. Lizzie was accused and arrested for the murders but was later acquitted and continued to live in Fall River until her death on June 1st 1927.

Haunted History: Although the home is known for its dark history, it has also been a location where paranormal activity has been reported. The Lizzie Borden House, now a very popular B&B has had many reports of floral scents, doors opening and closing on their own, as well as floors creaking. Guests have reported the spirits are polite but make their presence known to the living. The previous owner has stated the lights had a life of their own flicking on and off. Indentations of a body have been found in the John Morse room. Throughout the night cries can be heard, and the spirit of Lizzie has been seen in the basement frantically searching for a place to dispose the murder weapon.
