Lizzie Borden Home
The site of the infamous axe murders of Lizzie
Borden's father and stepmother is today a bed and breakfast
establishment, where one of the guest rooms is a crime scene.
Guests are given a tour and a history lesson. Although Lizzie was
acquitted of the crimes, most local people believed her guilty, and
she lived the remainder of her life as a recluse.
