Lizzie Borden Bed And Breakfast And Museum, Fall River, Massachusetts

The Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast is located in the historical town of Fall River, Massachusetts. This bed and breakfast takes its name from the a former occupant of the house, who lived there with her father, stepmother and sister in 1892. On the morning of August 4, 1892, Andrew and Abby Borden, Lizzie's father and stepmother, were murdered with a hatchet. Lizzie was arrested for the crime, and was put on trial, but was found not guilty. However, no other suspects were ever brought forward, so Lizzie remains a well-known notorious name, and was shunned by the community.

Eight rooms are available in the house for guests, named after their former occupants from the Borden family. The proprietors allege that the house is haunted, and encourage guests to come see for themselves. The house has a Victorian theme, and has been restored to appear as much as it was in 1892 as possible. Guests are served an authentic Victorian breakfast of bananas, sugar cookies, "jonny cakes" (cornmeal flat breads), as well as traditional modern breakfast foods.

Innkeeper Lee Ann Wilber also offers a museum of Borden memorabilia on the premises, and has had her bed and breakfast featured on television numerous times, including on the History Channel and on the Montel Williams Show. Due to the notoriety of the case and home, and to the media attention, rooms prices are moderately expenisve (call for prices) yet the bed and breakfast continues to be popular. Guests even have the option of renting out the whole home for themed events and weddings (call for prices).
