I have family buried in the Hollywood cemetery and visit from time to time. History captivates me. And the lives of people in the past shape our very lives today, if we will let them. Spend time there soon and bask in the history of Richmond.

This is the reason we came to Richmond, and we were NOT disappointed! What a beautiful, well-maintained garden cemetery! Quite a history and art lesson.

If you like history, monuments or cemeteries, this is an excellent attraction for you. Two U.S. Presidents, the only Confederate President, and many notable generals, soldiers, politicians, and citizens are buried here. Like any old cemetery, there are plenty of ghost stories.

After 40 years in the area, we finally made the visit to this remarable site near downtown Richmond. The day was beautiful (enhanced the visit) and we had plenty of time to drive, walk and observe. Make sure you get a guide map atthe entrance because it highlights particular locations you don'r want to miss. Take care if you drive... More

We heard this was an interesting place to visit, and it is. But, it is also confusing because we didn't see anywhere to get a map so just sort of wandered around. There are guides online so we used our smart phones to guide us somewhat, though the roads are confusing. Finally found some of what the online guides suggested,... More

One of the prettiest views in Richmond. Enjoy the serenity and the history. Of particular note is the Southern, high ridge that overlooks the river and the Confederate burial zone. While you're at it, go say hello to the Poe family.

This historic cemetery is located in Richmond, Va. near the campus of Virginia Commonwealth University. I have walked through it several times and it is huge! There Is so much to see in this park-like setting. The monuments are truly artistic and beautiful. There are sections where civil war soldiers are interned, presidents, and even a man who was said...

There are two US Presidents there. And the only CSA President. Numerous Richmond luminaries. Thousands upon thousands upon thousands of Civil War soldiers, including JEB Stuart and George Pickett, among many other ranking Confederates. The ridge overlooking the James River is a joy on any warm day.

You can go on a paid walking tour through the Valentine Museum or tour on your own during the day. I have done both and learned so much interesting history from the tour guide. The walking tour goes up and down hills and is not for someone who has walking problems. You could bring a wheelchair and have help pushing... More
