Oak Grove Cemetery in Fall River is a very special place, and a fine example of the Victorian memorial park ideal inspired by the first American garden memorial park, Mount Auburn. It is filled to the brim with symbolism of the age, and is the final resting place of many celebrated and important city personalities from inventors, to artists, to politicians, actors and humanitarians.
For historians and researchers, a visit to the graves of Fall River’s famous ancestors is as close as one can come to meeting those people of long ago. In every city cemetery lay the history of that city. It is important to remember our citizens of the Past, and vitally important to keep this sacred ground preserved and well-maintained for future generations.
