Massachusetts has a number of creepy locations but one stands out among the rest.
Thrillist named the Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast in Fall River the creepiest place to visit in Massachusetts.
“After a stay there, I can attest: This home painstakingly furnished to look exactly as it did on the morning of the murders will creep you right out,” Camille Dodero wrote. “I did not sleep a wink.”
The house is known for the double-murder scene, where Abby and Andrew Borden were hacked to death in 1892. Lizzie was the number one suspect in her father and stepmother’s deaths but was acquitted by a jury.
The case remains unsolved.
Now a bed and breakfast, people come from all over the world to have their own supernatural experiences. People have reported feeling cold spots or hearing footsteps and voices and seeing full bodied apparitions of the Borden family.
If just visiting isn’t enough, the nearby historic “Maplecroft” mansion, where Lizzie Borden lived after she was acquitted of killing her father and stepmother, is on the market.
The home includes 6 fireplaces, 7 bedrooms, stained glass — and possibly a few paranormal activities.
“Honestly, that house has a lot of paranormal activity in it,” Jerry Pacheco, operations manager for the Borden B&B and museum told Boston Magazine. “Even more than here, I would say.”
Other scary sites around New England on Thrillist’s list include, Lake Bomoseen State Park in Vermont, Mount Washington Hotel in New Hampshire, Mount Hope Cemetery in Maine and Curtis House Inn in Connecticut.
