Well I guess my plan of winning the lottery and buying the Lizzie Borden house has fallen appart...and not just because I didn't win the lottery. Reportedly the property is being purchased by US Ghost Adventures, an entertainment company that offers tours of 33 haunted locations in several cities around the United States including Boston.
Lance Zaal founded the company in 2018, and now is under contract to buy the Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast and Museum in Fall River, Massachusetts, the site of the famous hatchet murders of Andrew and Abby Borden.
The property will continue on as a B & B and Museum with new experiences for visitors. Zaal said, “We look forward to adding the Lizzie Borden house to our growing portfolio of haunted experiences and working with the staff to create new opportunities for guests.” He continued, “We have exciting plans for the house that we’ll announce in April.”
To celebrate, US Ghost Adventures is holding a contest on their website usghostadventures.com. When you book a tour in one of the cities listed, just enter the promo code “Borden” for your chance to win a two nights stay at the Lizzie Borden House! They'll even throw in 500 bucks for transportation! The contest is open until June 1, 2021, click HERE to find out more.
