Lizzie Borden took an axe

And gave her mother forty whacks.

When she saw what she had done

She gave her father forty-one.

Lizzie Andrew Borden was an American woman, from Massachusetts, who was tried and aquitted in the 1892 Axe murders of her father and stepmother. Andrew and Abby Borden were found slaughtered in their home from Axe wounds, and even though many think Lizzie committed the crime, she was free to live her life in Massachusetts and no one was ever charged with the murders.

The Borden house is now a very popular haunted location and shows such as My Ghost Story and Ghost Adventures have increased interest in the house. The website can tell you more about the house. Some mediums and psychics that have visited the house claim that Lizzie’s father abused her and was the reason that he was killed. No one will ever know what really happened and it is open to much debate. Below are some pictures…..
