After our visit of the Lizzy Borden house, we went over to the cemetery which is a beautifully kept site. The Borden grave sites are very easy to find and very nicely laid out and kept up so you can see the names on the old stones. A must see place after you have been to the house!

Burial place of Lizzy Borden and family. Not far from the inn and worth the drive to see. Surprise to see what was left on the grave.

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.
