    I’ve never been to this house, however I’ve always wanted to go. I’ve always been interested in the Legend of Lizzie Borden and remember, as a child, the nursery rhyme that we all sang. AS a disabled veteran I’m not able to travel and live in the state of Washington. Though I just bought the movie: ‘ Lizzie Borden Took an Ax’ and ‘ the Legend of Lizzie Borden’.

    the Borden B & B location is not the same as it was in the time of the Borden Murders so the blood in the basement is in no way connected since the basement of the house was constructed to sit the moved house on and the old basement is located on the original site. If you are going to tell a story, it would better if all the facts were told and not made up.

      Sorry to correct you- the house on Second street is exactly the same house where the murders were committed. It was built in 1845 and is STILL standing on the same lot. No part of it has been moved. The barn was taken down and a replica rebuilt in 2005-6. You are probably confusing it all with the WHITEHEAD- GRAY house which used to be facing Fourth street. This was the house which caused all the trouble when Andrew Borden purchased it and deeded it over to Abby.Emma and Lizzie were very upset over this and demanded equal compensation. Andrew gave the girls the old Ferry Street house to soothe wounded feelings. Lizzie started calling Abby Mrs. Borden after this incident. Abby’s half-sister Bertie Whitehead and Abby’s stepmother Jane Gray lived in this Fourth Street house. It still exists but was moved onto Spring street so a large three-storey could be built on that corner lot. This is most likely the house you have confused Second Street with. In 1892 the Borden house was numbered #92- today it is actually #230. The city allows the business to display #92 on the door.
