Lizzie Borden House
With all the manufactured gore that Halloween brings with it, we thought it might be an idea to remind you that you can see the real thing: The Lizzie Borden House in Fall River, MA, where Lizzie Borden famously gave her mother 40 whacks … with an axe.
Lizzie Borden’s Home is now a bed and breakfast where (if you book a month or two ahead) you can reserve any of 8 bedrooms (including the Morse Room where Lizzie’s mother’s body was found), an entire floor, or the entire house. On short notice, however, you might want to start with the 50-minute tours, are offered every day of the year except Christmas and New Years Day. Guests staying at the bed and breakfast receive a complimentary tour with their stay. Visit the website for more info or call for reservations (508-675-7333.)
