Do You Dare...
Stay at the Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast? Many believe that it is haunted by Lizzie's father & step mother to this day. The brutal murder took place in August 1892.
I had to check it out for myself so Tim and I along with Noah ventured down to the Lizzie B&B in Fall River, Massachusetts.
Now we were not brave enough to spend the night but were lucky enough to take part in their evening tour which was wonderful. The tour started at approximately 8:00 in Lizzie's parlor. The tour guide Mrs.Eleanor Thibault was very nice and informative. She made us feel welcome and told us of her many experiences as a tour guide and night manager.
We were lead to each of the eight bedrooms in this old victorian home. What a fun time we all had that evening. At the end of the evening tour for an additional $10.00 per person we had the opportunity to participate in a seance. Let the fun begin!
Needless to say there are many theories on why and how Mr. Borden and his wife were murdered. One being that he was just a little too close for comfort to Lizzie and she told her uncle about it and he hired someone to murder Lizzie's step-mother and then Lizzie's father.
So somewhat believing that theory myself I had to ask Mr. Borden during the seance if he enjoyed all of the women visiting the house and did he watch them in the shower and disrobing. According to the medium he refused to answer my question, but Mrs. Borden whispered "yes he does" at that moment I was happy we were sleeping elsewhere for the night.
If you get a chance be sure to visit this lovely home and if you can stay the night I would recommend it. I know I will be back to stay the night and further explore this beautiful home filled with intrigue and mystery.
