The Lizzie Borden murder house

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Charles Stallions Real Estate Services 610125


This stately home makes an elegant impression. But would you want to live in the home where a brutal double murder occurred?The sitting room in the real-life Lizzie Borden murder house


On Aug. 4, 1892, Andrew Borden, and his second wife, Abby Borden, were hacked to death at home. Their adult daughter Lizzie Borden was tried and acquitted of the ax murders.

Believe it or not, that ghastly history was a selling point for Lance Zaal, who bought the infamous Lizzie Borden House in Fall River, MA, in 2021 for $2 million.

Zaal (who also happened to invent a “haunted” doll named Lily) has since opened an inn aptly named the Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast, for travelers with an appetite for a little blood and gore. Offerings at the B&B include historic tours, ghost hunts, and themed dinners.

I am surprised at how beautiful the room is.  I would stay there, but I think my agent should stay there for a week first just so I know how friendly the ghosts are.  😉  I did not know that Lizzie Borden was acquitted.  It certainly did not help her reputation.

Charles, not sure if I could spend a night in a house with bad juju, let alone ax murders!
