One of the most iconic crimes in American history is none other than the murders of Andrew and Abby Borden. The couple have been suspected to have been murdered by their daughter Lizzie Borden since 1892. With such a rich history, the house in which the murders took place has since become a massive tourist attraction. Now the house’s owners, who’ve also ran the location as a bed and breakfast, have decided to give someone else a chance at owning such an eerie spot. The iconic Lizzie Borden house has been placed for sale at the cost of $2 million.
As detailed via the official listing page:
“Lizzie Borden took an ax…or did she? Welcome to the ORIGINAL house where Lizzie Borden was accused (and acquitted) of the brutal double ax murders of her father, Andrew, and stepmother, Abby, that occurred on that warm summer day of August 4th,1892. This is an unbelievable opportunity to own and operate one of New England’s top tourist attractions. Entertain visitors from all over the world.”
The official listing page then further describes all the ways in which one can “entertain visitors” as mentioned above.
“This is a turnkey operation, running lucrative day tours and evening events, and as a popular bed and breakfast destination. Picture yourself serving fun hatchet cookies, tiny johnny cakes, and a scrumptious breakfast to overnight guests who have just enjoyed an experience of a lifetime! Owner’s retirement is your gain! Sale includes business, trademarks, intellectual rights, and property. Can also be purchased with the Victorian mansion, ‘Maplecroft,’ where Lizzie lived the rest of her life after she was acquitted.”
The murders have become even more famous with time, over a century later, as they still have not been solved. Although Lizzie Borden has been suspected of being the murderer, she was founded as not guilty by the jury. As a result, the crimes have maintained a place in pop culture history as has the iconic name Lizzie Borden. Now, depending on just how much money you happen to have, you could very easily be the new owner of the Lizzie Borden house – the site for her parent’s horrific murders.
