Villisca Ax Murder 06

One of America’s Most Haunted Houses

The Villisca Ax Murders of June 1912 remain an enduring and unsettling enigma in American criminal history. In this quaint small Iowa town on a pleasant summer’s night, eight unsuspecting victims - including six children - were bludgeoned to death as they slept following a church service. Despite a nationwide manhunt, multiple suspects and two trials, the murder remains unsolved.

Take a Step Back in Time

In the 1990s, the home was painstakingly restored by historians Martha and Gavin Linn at great expense and effort to appears exactly like the night of the crime, right down to the lack of electricity or running water. Due to their dedication, the Josiah B. Moore House is now on the National Registry of Historic Places.
