The story takes place in Fall River, Massachusetts(which is the same town that Emeril Legasse is from :D ) in the summer of 1892. Lizzie and Emma were sisters, and the daughters of an affluent businessman, Andrew Borden. The unfortunate thing about Mr. Borden was that is only interest in life was money and not his daughters. His first wife, the mother of his two daughters died in 1862, and in 1865, he married Abby Durfee Gray a spinster that rarely left home. Mr. Borden was so frugal that he did not have plumbing in his home. Obviously you see a stage being set here, The girls, Emma and Lizzie did not care for Abby, because the girls felt that their father was giving Abby their inheritance.
From the beginning this would end badly. At 11:15 am, Bridget who was washing windows outside heard Lizzie scream. Andrew Borden was found dead in the living room, and Abby was found upstairs in the guest bedroom. Lizzie's story of her whereabouts raised flags with law enforcement and she was subsequently charged with the murder of her father and step-mother. The nails in the coffin ,were Lizzie tried to burn a dress a week after the murder, testified by a friend. Lizzie also tried to buy poison just before the murders.
If you are in the Fall River area for Halloween then the Asylum of Horror is the place to get the crap scared out of you. If you would much rather experience the terror first hand then the Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast/Museum is the haunt for you. When it is time for a midnight snack, head on over toThe Ugly American for the best burger that you'll ever eat. Be sure to try The Cheese, which is 7.5 oz burger that has been baptized in cheese, or if that is not enough cheese, then try the Grilled Cheeseburger Deluxe, which is one fat 7.5 oz burger sandwiched between two grilled cheeses. This burger joint comes highly recommended and if pigging out is in your vocabulary, then this "hole in the wall" is your spot.
