Beautiful graveyard. The Borden family plots are very easy to find. There is really no need to take a cemetery tour unless it's part of another tour.

The cemetery is very big but average in my opinion. It is well kept and has some nice monuments but not really that many notable burials other than the Bordens.

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.

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...More
