For Rocco's birthday gift, Elizabeth rented out the three rooms on the top floor of the Lizzie Borden house and we spent the night there ("we" being Liz, Rocco, me, Jennifer (our sister), Nate (our brother), Kat (Nate's fiancee), and Liz's boyfriend). This is one of the most haunted houses in the country, where numerous ghost investigations for TV shows have happened over the years, and while we'd all toured the house in the past, none of us had ever spent the night. It really was a memorable and fun night!
We did a ghost hunt with one of the tour guides at the house from 10 pm-12 am and that was really, really good. There is definitely ghostly activity happening in that house. I'll share the memorable experience that I had: I was sitting on the couch that's in the spot where Andrew Borden was killed, and I suddenly felt a cold spot on my lap that lasted for a few seconds. A few minutes later, I felt it in the front of my legs. It was too random and sudden and specific to have been a draft. Perhaps it was the ghost of a child who sat down on my lap and then later sat on the floor and leaned up against my legs. The house is known to be visited by the spirits of children, likely the two children who lived next door and were killed (by their mother 😢).
I really enjoyed our night at the Lizzie Borden House, and I hope to do it again in the future!
