We did the car tour, stopping at significant places. We spent a couple of hours there, and are glad we did. The folks in the office at the entrance could not have been more helpful.

So much to see, buried presidents and very interesting headstones. A step back in time. There is a memorial to Confederate Soldiers and the crypts and mausoleums are very interesting and some very ornate.

Lots of history and very pretty to see. We did the driving tour and took our time checking stuff out. Would be interested in a guided tour one day or ghost tour even!

Huge cemetery, amazing view of the river, two presidents, Civil War monuments and many prominent military figures here. Must-visit in Richmond and one of my favorite places to visit on the east coast.

Hollywood Cemetery is more than just a place to bury family. There are graves of U.S. Presidents, Governors, and Dignitaries. Many of the original families of Richmond have plots here.

The cemetery is a wonderful place and very peaceful. The trees were beautiful with all the fall colours. There were many Confederate graves proudly flying their flags which was a lovely tribute.
