Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast
Lizzie Borden took an axe And gave her mother forty whacks. And when she saw what she had done She gave her father forty-one. This children’s rhyme is just one of many inconsistencies in the account of what happened in Fall River in 1892. Actually, Abby Borden was assaulted with 18 blows to the head with a hatchet, while Andrew Borden received 11.
