A Lizzie Borden museum in Salem that sparked a lawsuit and questions over its location has closed after about 2 1/2 years in business. Owner Leonard Pickel told The Salem News that his 40 Whacks Museum faced steep rent and high utility costs at a time of year when tourist traffic slows. He says he was never able to attract key school groups. The museum opened in 2008 as the True Story of Lizzie Borden. Pickel was sued by the Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast in Fall River, where Borden was accused of using an ax to kill her father and stepmother. The Salem museum changed its name.
