From prospect st just follow the white arrows on the road, they lead you right to the family plot.
It was cool nothing real special just a small stone next to Emma. Worth a look if you close by.

All Lizzie Borden fans will want to make a trip here to see her grave next to Emma's and the rest of the Borden family who is buried here together. It's a very large place and you can easily get lost if you don't pay attention. There are arrows pointing you to the Lizzie Borden grave. Apparently so many people come here to see her grave that they put in arrows on the road to point the way to her grave site so that you don't get lost. Otherwise, this is a large cemetery with lots of beautiful statuary and monuments to the dead. It's not far from the Lizzie Borden house so you can conveniently stop by here after a tour of the house.

Our visit to the cemetery came after taking the Lizzie Borden House tour. The directions lead us to the gate that is currently under construction. If you are visiting during said construction, you must go to the other entrance that is on Oak Grove Ave.

You then can navigate toward the gate that is under construction where you will see white arrows painted on the roadway. These arrows lead you right to the Borden family plots, where Lizzie resides.

While you're there you'll notice that many of the other headstones are very very old. Worth the walk around but don't get lost...

Main gate is under construction, but we did not observe anyone working on this during our weekday visit. Ask at Lizzie Borden House for driving directions into alternate enterance. We ended up parking on side street int he back of cemetary and walking through a sketchy back gate. Quite the hoofing, only to make it to front gate and end up at other Borden Plot. Afer observing several cars drive through cemetary, we followed the pack and found the plot. Not much to see, but something to do. We certainly got our steps in that day.
