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.

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...More

I have family I visit here at Oak Grove Cemetery. I've also come several times to visit the Borden family. There are always coins or trinkets left by the gravestones. The stones are beautiful as you drive through the grounds.
