Resting place os Lizzie and her sister Emma Borden along with their parents. Beautiful old historic cemetery. Arrows on the path lead you to these graves.

Straight in and then left a little ways to the Borden plot with graves of Andrew, Abby, Emma, Lizzie, and Alice, a daughter who died. If you're in Fall River, it's a must stop.

This cemetary is of course famous for being the resting place of Lizzie Borden. But, it is a special place, very quiet and full of trees and quiet curving road that follow the hilly terrain of New England. There are also some very old gravestones including one of Captain Brightman who was massacred by pirates. That's what it says on... More

The arrows on the cement made it easy to find popular grave sites. The cemetery was really old, which was cool. Tons of interesting tombstones!

my husband and I went for a walk through for the cemetery to find the Lizzie Borden grave site. We found that and many of the other Bordens that had lived in the area. It was just fun to see the grave of someone so infamous!

Large cemetery. Spend a lot more time there than we thought we would. Lots of interesting history there and many nice people stopped to talk to us about history inside the Cemetery. Most notable an incredibly nice Fall River Police Officer, who spent a lot of time sharing fascinating info with us about the Lizzie Borden graves and history.

I visited the cemetery to see the grave of Lizzie Borden and her family. The grounds were very pretty although there was spray paint on the family momument. Considering that's the most famous grave there (I'd assume), you'd think they'd keep it clean. Still, it's worth a trip!
