The company is offering transportation and a complimentary two-night stay, along with sweepstakes, to celebrate the acquisition of the house.

Lizzie Borden’s father and stepmother were murdered in the house with a hatchet in 1892. Borden was accused of the murders and her trial gained national media attention before she was acquitted in 1893. The deaths are some of the oldest and most infamous unsolved murders in the country.

The home has been featured in movies, books, music and numerous TV shows, and is renowned for its hauntings.
