It is a huge cemetery. The history is amazing and at times sad. Richmond being a focal point during the Civil War there are a lot of soldiers buried there and it puts the loss of life in perspective.

You might say, what a grave yard for tourist spot? Yes, a must see place when visiting Richmond; there is a lot of history here and is definitely worth a visit. Donation are taken but there is no admission charge. You CAN drive to access different parts of the cemetery but you'll need to be careful of other cars and... More

Anyone who enjoys history and exploring cemeteries will love this one! It is also in a beautiful setting of rolling hills and overlooking the James River, but is very rich in historical grave sights.

On the advice of a relative we decided to visit the Hollywood Cemetery. We visited the Civil War section, saw the graves of 3 presidents, and sat overlooking the James River. There were stories to hear. Need to visit again because you can't see it all in just an hour. Make sure you donate your $1 to get a map.

This is a wonderful old museum. It was great to meander around the cemetery stopping to read some of the tombstones and statutes. The cemetery is on a hill overlooking the James River and downtown Richmond can be seen from some locations. Some really beautiful views. Interesting to see so many historical tombstones and grave markers. I would love to... More

The views of the river from President's circle are amazing. onroe's tumb (the birdcage) is in restoration, so I could not see it. Bring comfortable shows as it is very hilly. I took a taxi that dropped me at the President's Circle and then I walked back (donwhill)

One of my favorite places to just hang out, with some of the best views of the James River anywhere in the city. In fall, the trees flame crimson and gold over the white marble graves, punctuated by the deep green Hollywoods that give the place its name. In the spring, the pink azaleas bloom so profusely you become overwhelmed... More

Very awe inspiring and beautiful cemetery. Presidents Tyler and Monroe are buried there, along with the only Confederate President Davies. General Stuart is also buried there. It's gorgeous, so many lovely statues and grave markers. A beautiful walk and view of the river and city.
