Famous New England gravesites
Lizzie Borden(b. 1860, d. 1927)
Claim to fame: Accused of chopping up her parents.
Buried: Oak Grove Cemetery, Fall River
"Lizzie Borden took an ax and gave her mother forty whacks. When she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one." Though acquitted of the charges, Lizzie Borden's name is synonymous with one of the more frightful stories in Massachusetts lore, accused of killing her parents with an ax in Fall River in 1892. The Borden home, the alleged scene of the crime, still stands today as a bed and breakfast, once even bestowed with the honor of being the "World's Creepiest Destination," by The Travel Channel. Borden's grave reads, "Lizbeth" since she changed her name after the trials.
