Interesteng end to a great tour of the Borden home. There ws construction at main gate so you have to find the rear of cemetery and enter there. Otherwise, you follow the white arrows on the road that leeds to the Borden plot

We went there this morning, after having spent the evening at the Lizzie Borden B&B. Just a heads up - the main gate is closed, so you need to drive all the way around to the back entrance. We made the mistake of walking, literally, over most of the cemetery - and it is HUGE. Mistake in that we didn’t find the Borden’s right away - yet it’s a beautiful cemetery, and the graves were old and fascinating. If you enter through the back gate, go RIGHT when entering. If you walk along the walkway that runs along the right side, you will see white arrows after not too long, and that will take you directly to their graves. Worth the visit - and the walk! We definitely got our steps in today!

After We left Lizzie's house we went to see here grave. It's not too far from the house but the Prospect entrance was closed so we had to follow the outside of the cemetery to the other opening. The grave is fairly easy to find as you follow the white arrows right to her grave. The whole family is buried there and it makes for some good pictures.

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.
