“Lovely, well maintained final resting place for many.....”

Even on a very hot day (it was 91 degrees) there was enough shade and a pleasant breeze that kept us very comfortable as we explored this beautiful cemetery and lingered for awhile at the burial site of the infamous Borden family. There are many Borden's in the cemetery but most visitors make a point of seeking out the site where Lizzie, her parents and sisters are interred. The way is well marked when you enter the main gates you turn left and follow the arrows painted on the road which will take you right to the site. Pay your respects then wonder around and just enjoy the lovely, well maintained grounds and maybe even a picnic. Great place to get some exercise too! Definitely worth a trip if you are in the area.

This is really easy to get to, and white arrows direct you to the family plot. We stayed at the Lizzy Borden House B&B, so a visit to her grave was on the agenda as well.
I suppose there are lots of other interesting monuments in this HUGE cemetery, but once we saw the Bordens we were done.

Kind and helpful person at the Office pulled the Plot card for my 3 Greats Grandfather and his family and highlighted the location on the map. Far too few "street" signs made finding it difficult. It is a massive cemetery with meandering roads and paths. Well maintained and now have many photos to add to the family genealogy.

One CAUTION. Entrance and Office is at end of Prospect. Both Google and Waze directed me to the end of Garden and a rusty locked chain link fence.

Stopped by to see the final resting place of the Bordens. Very pretty cemetery, very well maintained. Just follow the arrows to left after entering thru the front arch.

Had to go see after the Borden House tour with Billy. Saw the Borden family plot and spoke to Lizzie and the wind began to rustle through the trees. Very unsettling
