Ghost hunters and lovers of the macabre have long frequented Lizzie Borden’s home. Although she was the only suspect in the bloody 1892 double murder of her parents, Victorian society seemed unable to believe that a woman was capable of an act so brutal.

Stay overnight if you dare… just don’t stand too long in the middle of the room where Lizzie’s stepmother was killed.
