Lizzie Borden's House
Despite being the descendant of wealthy, influential area residents, Lizzie Borden's father, Andrew Jackson Borden, grew up in very modest surroundings and struggled financially as a young man. He eventually prospered through the manufacture and sales of furniture and caskets, and went on to become a successful property developer who directed several textile mills including the Globe Yarn Mill Company, Troy Cotton, and Woolen Manufacturing Company. He also owned considerable commercial property and was both president of the Union Savings Bank and a director of the Durfee Safe Deposit and Trust Co. At the time of his death, his estate was valued at $300,000 ($7,874,444 as at 2014). Lizzie and her older sister, Emma Lenora Borden (1851–1927), had a relatively religious upbringing and attended Central Congregational Church. As a young woman, Lizzie was very involved in activities related to her church, including teaching Sunday school to children of recent immigrants to America. She also was involved in Christian organizations such as the Christian Endeavor Society, where she served as its secretary-treasurer; and contemporary social movements such as the Women’s Christian Temperance Union. She was also a member of the Ladies' Fruit and Flower Mission. (Wikipedia.com)

Although cleaning the guest room was one of Lizzie and Emma's regular chores, John Morse had slept in the room the previous night and Abby had gone up to the room to make the bed. According to the forensic investigation, Abby was facing her killer at the time of the attack. She was struck on the side of the head with a hatchet, cutting her just above the ear, which caused her to turn and fall face down on the floor causing contusions to her nose and forehead. Her killer is then assumed to have sat on her back, and delivered nineteen direct hits to the back of the head
Now known as the Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast, you can rent and sleep in the rooms where Lizzie and the rest of the family slept. The debate rages on as to whom committed the infamous murders, but most agree, this is still an active location. People have reported seeing a mist-like human figure form above a couch in the area where Andrew Borden took the last nap of his life. Apparitions of Abby Borden and Lizzie have reportedly appeared in the basement and bedrooms in front of startled guests and staff.
