Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast/Museum (Fall River, MA)

The name alone should give you a little shiver, why wouldn’t it be haunted. Remember Lizzie Borden – she commits the infamous murder of her parents in 1892. According to the morbid sing-song verse: “Lizzie Borden took an ax / And gave her mother forty whacks / When she saw what she had done / She gave her father forty-one.” Book a stay at the Lizzie, and you can sleep (or try) in the actual room where her parents died.

Captain William Grant built this large New England home for his wife, Mercy Adelaide Avery, in 1754 during the Revolutionary War.

Adelaide now haunts the inn as she anxiously waits for her husband to return from the sea. Guests who have stayed in the Adelaide Room say that she has knocked down shower curtains, messes around with the TV, and is noticed moving around on the staircase. There have also been reports that she has been seen with two children. If you visit this Inn and feel a slight caress about your face or notice the appearance of a light mist in the air, it could be the ghost of Adelaide checking in!

It has been reported to the innkeeper that a man in striped pajamas can be seen walking around the Celebrations caboose.  The Inn renamed the Celebrations caboose to “The CaBOOse” because the apparition had been seen so frequently in that car. It goes without saying that every year several people report seeing the man in the striped outfit roaming about this property.
