  • We wanted to stop in to see the "Axe" used in the Borden murders. However the only think open was the gift shop, the rest of the place was closed because they were decorating for Christmas.

I never paid attention to that before. We were treated well. The grounds were clean and nice. Our vacation was very pleasant. Stop and see the historical society.
