Many historic and interesting markers. Lizzie Borden and the Borden family are laid to rest here. There are also historic people laid to rest and a nice area devoted to American military veterans.

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.

Yes this is the location of the infamous Borden family plot, the final resting place of Lizbeth "Lizzie" Borden. But this cemetery has been the place where we walked our dog, took the baby for a long stroll, or sometimes rode a bike. We've lived...More
