The Lizzie Borden House has been officially listed for sale. Located in picturesque Fall River, Massachusetts, the home boasts eight bedrooms—plus, it has the charming honor of being the site of two notorious 19th century axe murders.

On August 4, 1892, Andrew and Abby Borden were brutally murdered with a hatchet in their own home. Suspicion soon turned to Andrew’s 32-year-old daughter Lizzie, and she was charged with delivering the gruesome fatal blows.

Lizzie was acquitted of the crime, but doubts about her innocence persisted. The story of the bloodthirsty murderess Lizzie Borden has since become a fixture of American pop culture.

In 1996, the home at 230 2nd St. was converted to a bed and breakfast, where brave guests—including our very own editor-in-chief—could opt to stay the night. Ever since the Bordens met their ghastly end within those walls, the house was said to be haunted.

Now, the Lizzie Borden House is on the market for $2 million, and it seems that an offer is pending. According to news station WJAR, real estate agent Suzanne St. John has “not spoken to anybody who does not want to keep it a bed and breakfast.” 

For now, it appears likely that the home will keep its doors open to visitors seeking paranormal experiences. In the meantime, you can take a virtual tour of the house to peer into the very rooms where the infamous murders took place.
