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!

I grew up very close to Oak Grove Cemetery and spent many hours there. I can recall being in grammar school and having a field trip complete with a picnic there. Anyhow if you plan to go see the Borden grave set aside some extra time. This place is fascinating. If you can plan to come on a hot summer... More

This is a gorgeous cemetery - but there are no maps to be found. We spent hours looking for a family grave.

We visited this cemetery to see the infamous Bordon Graves. There are white arrows on the ground to direct tourists to the site. We had never seen a cemetery like this one. There was a lot of unique grave stones, family plots. It is truly beautifully laid out and designed. Take some time to appreciate some of the architecture. Some... More

With my nephew as guide, we explored this very old and very big cemetery. One of the highlights was the fact that it holds Lizzie Borden's grave (as well as the entire Borden family, from the looks of it), and part way up one hill was a grave marker like I'd never seen. It was made of rose quartz, but... More
