Stopped to see the Borden graves which are very easy to find since they have arrows pointing to them. The place is really pretty. I wish we had time to walk around more and took at the old headstones.

I came to this cemetery before going to the Borden's house. The entire place is gorgeous. It's peaceful, calm, well-maintained, and very large. If you are going strictly for the Borden's graves, there are white arrows on the pavement that will lead you in the direction right to them. While we were there, one of the people who works there...

I have loved this cemetery from the time I was a young girl and walked through it almost everyday. Of course , the Borden grave is the big attraction but the cemetery itself is interesting and beautiful. If you come to Fall River, don't miss it. If you can come in the Fall when the leaves are turning color, that... More

There are actually arrows on the pavement, directing visitors to the grave sites of Lizzie bordem, emma and their poor slain parents. The cemetery is also beautiful in itself.

I often walk the roads of Oak Grove Cemetery for exercise and, like any outdoor site, the view changes dramatically as the seasons change. There are in fact many oaks here but there are also maple, beech, dogwoods, etc... so that the autumn foliage is beautiful. There is one large tulip poplar that is spectacular in the spring. Beside the... More

The cemetery is huge and very interesting to walk around and view all of the headstones. The infamous Borden family is buried there and it's nice that the cemetery has arrows painted on the walk so that you can find the Borden family's gravestones easily. Some of the headstones are very ornate and beautiful to look at. Worth the trip... More

A decent place to visit to see old Fall River history from the prospective of the people who lived there for 200+ years. Parking available and easy to find.
