It was very interesting to see where the Borden family were laid to rest. There are arrows leading to where the Borden plots are, so you don’t waste any time wandering around the cemetery. Definitely a must see.

Many historic and interesting markers. Lizzie Borden and the Borden family are laid to rest here. There are also historic people laid to rest and a nice area devoted to American military veterans.

We went here to see where the Borden family is buried. The cemetery itself is very nice. There is parking right at the entrance and then white arrows clearly lead the way to the Borden site. Very peaceful. Gates close at dusk.
