History

On the hot morning of August 4, 1892, the bodies of Andrew Borden and his wife, Abby Borden, were found murdered by blows from a hatchet. Abby was found in the upstairs guest bedroom and Andrew was found on the living room couch. There was at least and hour and a half between the 2 murders.

Only 2 people were on the grounds when the murders took place; a young maid named Bridget Sullivan who was washing the windows when Mrs Borden was killed and, in the attic, when Mr Borden was killed, and Lizzie Borden herself. Lizzie claimed to be in the house when her mother was killed and, in the barn, when her father was killed. Lizzie, a 31-year-old spinster, was living at home at the time.

She was accused of the murders but was later acquitted by a jury. Lizzie died on June 1, 1927 from pneumonia and dispute continues to this day over who the actual murderer or murderers were.

Since 1996 the house where the Bordens were killed is now a Bed & Breakfast and is available to stay at and for tours.

As of 2021 the house is up for sale.

 

Paranormal Activity

The apparition of a woman in Victorian clothing is seen straightening the furniture and dusting. Phantom footsteps are heard on the stairs at night and on the third floor. Doors open and close on their own. Phantom conversations are heard in empty rooms. Lights flicker on and off and electrical equipment sometimes fails to work. Phantom indentations like people have been sleeping on beds have happened while people’s backs were turned.
