We came here just to see the Borden Family plots, right after finished the tour in their house. They were very easy to find as the cemetery provides us white arrows painted on the walkway that take you right there. It's a big and historic cemetery with lots to see some really pretty headstones. Lots of colonial and victorian era... More

If you love cemeteries for their beauty and serenity as well as craftsmanship for the headstones then this is one to visit. The Borden family members are buried here and some of the stones in this cemetery are absolutely beautiful. The cemetery road has arrows on the ground directing you to where the Borden plot is located and if you... More

The cemetery is HUGE and so beautiful! There are so many graves that are hundreds of years old there. I love that some sections/families were surrounded by fences. There are also arrows that lead you to the Borden family plot.

You don't have a chance to second-guess where to go, since the arrows direct you right to the Borden family plot.

I went because the Lizzie Borden family is there...easy to find (follow the white arrows on the road). It was nothing fantastic, but after touring the Lizzie Borden house, I wanted to see where Lizbeth was buried. Good for the pictures :)

I got to fall river and had some time before the next tour of the Borden house. So we saw the Borden family Graves. It was very peaceful in the cemetery. It was also nice to see people putting American flags on military Graves.

I couldn't believe that I was visiting the graves of such famous people. I had just read about them in Victoria Lincoln's book, A Private Disgrace, and had just visited their house on French St. Before I got out of the car to visit the graves, I looked at the picture of Lizzie on the cover of A Private Disgrace....

This is the cemetery where Lizzie Borden's family was buried so we went there after staying at the Lizzie Borden house. There are a lot of very old graves here and a lot of large memorials. If you miss this your life will go on but if you are there and have time, why not spend a few minutes to... More

We stopped by to see the Borden graves and wandered around a bit. What a beautiful old cemetery! The grounds are mostly well-kept, and there are many interesting carvings and graves to look at.
