We were directed here after our tour of the Lizzie Borden house as the family is all buried here. arrows mark the way to the family plot and it was easy to find and well maintained. The cemetery is beautiful and we explored more. Many old headstones and elaborate family plots are all around.

This is an expansive beautifully kept cemetery. Large mature trees cover the gravestones like they are shielding them from the sun. The attention to detail with regards to the gravestones was amazing. Just a beautiful drive. I would recommend this to anyone who loves the Victorian and Revolution eras.

Went to the Oak Grove Cemetery after we went to the Lizzie Borden House tour. The Cemetery has white arrows painted on the road to direct you to the resting place of Lizzie Borden and family. It was a nice finish and rounded out our tour of the notorious Lizzie Borden murder mystery.

We have been to Oak Grove Cemetery many times to visit the "current home" of some distant relatives. It is always fascinating to read the names on the tombstones of the early historical residents, Borden, Brayton, Durfee etc.

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.
