Spirit Halloween Sending One Lucky Fan to Spend the Night in Lizzie Borden's House

You could win a private stay in the infamous Massachusetts home.

It's never too early to start celebrating Halloween, and with only six months to go until the annual tradition, Spirit Halloween is kicking things off by sending a lucky fan and their "coven" to the Lizzie Borden House in Fall River, Massachusetts. Back in 1892, Andrew and Abbey Borden were killed by a hatchet and, while Andrew's daughter Lizzie was tried for the murders, she was acquitted and the suspect was never found. In the decades since the incident, various reports have emerged about unsettling supernatural experiences that have unfolded in the home.

"We are delighted to work with Spirit Halloween to roll out the red carpet and offer the public a chance to win a one-of-a-kind experience at the infamous Lizzie Borden House, which also includes additional haunted experiences and merchandise," Lance Zaal, President & Founder of US Ghost Adventures, shared in a statement.

"Our Halfway to Halloween celebration provides fans an exhilarating taste of what's to come this fall and empowers them to start planning for their favorite season as early as they please," Steven Silverstein, CEO of Spirit Halloween, added. "We have cultivated an incredible following of enthusiasts who embody the Halloween lifestyle, and we're thrilled to bring the fun back to life."
