Famous Murder Houses El Pasoans Wish They Could Live In
230 2nd St. in Fall Rivers, Massachusetts is up for sale if you happen to have $2 million lying around. If that address doesn't sound familiar, maybe the name Lizzie Borden does? Because that's where Lizzie Borden took an axe... and, well, you know the rest.
The house where Lizzie Borden was accused (and acquitted) of the brutal double axe murders of her father, Andrew, and stepmother, Abby, that occurred on that warm summer day of August 4th,1892 is on the market. With this sale, you not only get the house, but the bed and breakfast and museum that comes with it. The sale includes business, trademarks, intellectual rights, and property.
Why is the house for sale? Who knows? But maybe it has something to do with how haunted it is?
With the announcement of the sale, it prompted us on the Buzz Adams Morning Show to ask ourselves: "if we could live in a famous murder house, where would we live?"
Buzz's answer was the Amityville house and Lisa opted for the Winchester mansion. As for me? If the place was still standing, I'd take up residence at 10050 Cielo Drive in Los Angeles- the home of the Tate-LaBianca murders took place.
I took the question to Facebook to ask our listeners which famous house they'd like to live in. I didn't get many answers, but the ones I did were great.
Someone agreed with me about the Tate-LaBianca murder house:
Someone mentioned the house from "Rose Red"- the mini-series from Stephen King's novel. Which is based off of the Winchester mansion.
Someone else agreed with Buzz and decided that a Dutch colonial house out in suburban neighborhood is their go-to.
And although the house from "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" isn't an actual murder house, it was partly based on the crimes of murderer Ed Gein. However, the gas station from the movie is open for business as a barbeque restaurant and hotel.
And finally, we got this answer. Not everyone wants to live in a murder house, I guess.
