The Historic Lizzie Borden House

The place of two of America’s greatest unsolved mysteries on August 4, 1892 which coined the term “Ax Murderer”. Today, the Lizzie Borden compound is many things to many people. It operates as a museum, bed, breakfast, and drinking establishment; one of the most haunted places in the United States; and host of fun events year-round including victorian dinners, murder mystery nights, an escape room, a wedding venue, and even a place where you can now throw an ax yourself!

The home is a fun and enriching experience for everyone who visits. Whether you’re here in person or visiting remotely, the Lizzie Borden house has something for you. Join us for an experience you’ll take with you to the grave. We look forward to meeting you!
