I'm a big fan of visiting cemeteries and New England has some stunning ones. This ones claim to fame is the Borden family graves. Other than that it has some lovely autumn colour, although many of the old trees are sadly past their best. Visually not as stunning as Swan Point in Providence or Mount Auburn in Ma, still worth...

Easy to find. They have good directions at the Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast. There are arrows on the road so you can easily find the graves.

This is a huge and beautiful cemetery. We went to see the Borden site. It was a somber but wonderful piece of history. It's a must see if you are in Fall River!

Easy to find and they have arrows on the road leading to the Borden family area. If you are in town to see the house you should come see the graves as it is only a few minutes away. Very peaceful and well maintained.

We only had time to visit the Borden cemetery plot, but I would love to visit again. You could spend hours walking through cemetery. So much history there.

Went to visit the Borden grave. Cemetery is easy to get to from the Lizzie Borden home. Once through the gates of the cemetery its easy to locate the gravesite they have arrows telling you exactly where to go.

Visiting this cemetery go hand in hand with the Lizzie Borden B&B. We went after the tour at night - even better. We got to hear the history of the Borden Family and heard more about their family and the memorial. It's a beautiful, old cemetery and worth seeing during the day as well.

This cemetery is huge and it is easy to get lost. If you are looking for the Borden family plot (and let's face it...you probably are), you have to go through the main gates instead of the various side entrances. Otherwise you will wander aimlessly forever. We parked in back and searched for about an hour, then got in the... More
