“Borden Family Murder Plot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

If you are a mystery buff and you are interested in Lizzie Borden this is the cemetery where she is buried along with her family. The actual house where the murders took place is now a bed and breakfast and the Fall River Historical Society has alot of the artifacts

“Beautiful, old cemetery!”

We went to "see" the Bordens, but honestly, it was a gorgeous old cemetery. The markers, stones & monuments would beautiful as well as the old iron fence. Great pictures!

“Graves”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

It was interesting to see the grave sites of the Borden family. This is a very large place. There are arrows marked on the ground to allow finding graves easier.

“Beautiful grounds, well maintained, easy access”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

Visited the Oak Grove Cemetery with my Grandmother's Cousin and his wife to visit our family plot. Learned a lot of history of our family, while we chatted, but I also got to take in a lot of the rest of the cemetery. There's roads throughout so you can drive your car to any particular area, but there's also parking at the main gate off of Playstead Road if you want to go by foot. The cemetery is several acres with thousands of grave stones. Lots of interesting reads and things to see. I'm not a huge fan of cemeteries in general, but felt comfortable and relaxed here. The landscaping is beautiful.
