This beautiful aged cemetery not only contains the Borden graves but the graves of so many that were involved in the Borden case: friends of Lizzie's, foes of Lizzie's, attorneys, policemen, you name it. The book "Lizzie Borden: Resurrections" by Sherry Chapman contains almost all...More

We went here to see where the Borden family is buried. The cemetery itself is very nice. There is parking right at the entrance and then white arrows clearly lead the way to the Borden site. Very peaceful. Gates close at dusk.

A visit to the Lizzie Borden house should be followed by a visit to the family grave. Once in the cemetery just follow the white arrows on the ground to the site.

Though on a rainy day, the grounds were very well kept and the burial site was prepared well. The construction on one of the entry gates was not convenient, but what must be done for upkeep, must be done. Everything went smoothly, with the groundskeepers...More
