The Eerie Villisca Axe Murder House In Iowa Is One Of The Creepiest Places You Can Visit This Fall

Iowa is a relatively peaceful state, and it’s one of the safest places to live in the entire country. That doesn’t mean we are without a gruesome past, though. Back in 1910, one small town was the site of the most horrifying Iowa crime when a vagrant broke into a home and murdered the occupants. The house is now considered one of the most haunted spots in the entire state.
