Cemeteries are sad and those with thousands of war graves are even more so. This is a beautiful place and well worth the visit for some history and opportunity to reflect on the folly of man.
Filled with history and beauty, this Richmond highlight is so much more than a resting place. The designs of the mausoleums and markers, the landscaping, and the breathtaking view make this a place not to miss, whether you're a long time resident, or just passing through. I highly recommend the guided walking tour ($10), as the guides have a great... More
I have lived in and out of Richmond for my entire life and one thing has always held true... Hollywood Cemetery is my favorite part of the city (outside of the James River, but Hollywood overlooks the river!).

Just a fantastic way to spend a few hours walking and driving through this treasure. Purchase a map and travel on foot as much as possible. Don't miss the Confederate Soldiers section, the Tiffany glass on Lewis Ginter's mausoleum, the Woodcutters' section and the iron Newfoundland dog that stands watch over a child's grave.
Fantastic attraction in the heart of Richmond. Ideal for serious or novice history buffs. We took the segway tour which is a great way to get around the cemetary grounds. There are beautiful monuments as well as spectacular views of the James River rapids.
This is a must for visitors to Richmond. The view from the cemetery is spectacular of the James River. Walking on a sunny day is just perfect AND the history is well documented. Be sure to stop at the front gate for a map of the property.
It was a beautiful weekend and the tour was fabulous! We learned lots about the history of the cemetary. Would highly recommend!
Don't miss it. Stop at the front gate and go into the administrative building. They offer a map for $1. Then do the self guided tour in your car or on foot. 2 US Presidents, 1 Confederate President, countless governors and politicians, and confederate soldiers. The view of the city is awesome and the cemetery is beautiful.
We decided on the walking tour through the Valentine Richmond History Center and we were glad that we did. The tour guide was able to inform us about many things both unique to this cemetery and also about cemeteries spanning the time period of this one as well. We would have been all over the place with just a map... More
