~ Welcome to the Villisca Axe Murder House website ~

On a quiet residential street in this small town sits an old white frame house. On a dark evening, the absence of lights and sounds are the first indication to visitors that this house is different from the other homes that surround it. Upon closer inspection, you'll notice her doors and windows are tightly closed and covered. An outhouse in the backyard suggests that this house does not occupy a place in the 21st century but somehow belongs in another era or another story. A weather-beaten sign warns rather than welcomes. This is the "Murder House".

The history of the Villisca Axe Murder house is detailed in this section with recollections of the crime, the town, the victims, inquest and suspects. Find truth against the folklore.
In the Tours/Overnights section of this website, you will see when tours are available, the prices and (if you think you can handle it) even book a trip to stay overnight. So go on..what are you waiting for? Are you scared?
