The map shows a listing of historical sites and the road has a blue line so you can drive through the cemetery. One of the most interesting areas is the Confederate soldiers burial... More

This cemetery is great for all history buffs - young and old. You can see the graves of John Tyler & other presidents, the dog that 'watches' over his master and a whole section set aside for the confederacy

I love a cemetery because it is a way to honor the dead. The great thing is that you can drive through the cemetery and find famous historical figures, as well as beautiful headstones honoring beloved family members. Go and see for yourself and also get a beautiful view of the James River.

If you like history then Hollywood Cemetery is worth a visit. As well as the Presidents you have Civil War Generals and other memorials to the fallen dead. Beautiful views of the James River as well.

This is a historic cemetery sitting above the James River. You can tell it is old because of the various ornate headstones, mausoleums, etc. in front of you. There are several Presidents buried in this cemetery and notable Richmond people of history. There is a Tour a Guide you can use to make sure you see the highlights. I was... More

Do yourself a favor and visit Hollywood Cemetery. It is the most beautiful site in Richmond and packed with history...Confederate generals, Presidents and many luminaries are buried there. It is a truly unique and fascinating place that must be seen.

We had just moved to Richmond and someone said we had to go to the cemetery. Weird, right? Not after you visit. This place is a park with graves, beautifully laid out graves, and quite possibly the best view of the James river in the city. As a civil war history buff, I spent hours walking through this place and... More
