Villisca Ax Murder House - Kitchen

On June 9th, 1912, Josiah B. Moore, his wife Sarah, and their four children attended church services.  After church, two friends of their daughter accompanied the Moore family to their home to spend the night.  The next morning, all were found dead, victims of a brutal ax murder that remains unsolved to this day.

This is their kitchen, where a bowl of bloody water was found on the table the morning following the murders.  It was presumably used by the killer to clean up after committing the crimes.

Today, the Moore's house has become famous for its paranormal activity.  In the Travel Channel's show "The Most Terrifying Places in America", the Ax Murder House rated as the #1 most terrifying place.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
