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

The burial site of 3 presidents several Va senators, representatives, governors, and many generals. Bring lunch and sit on one of the hundreds of benches then take a walk. If you want Hollywood offer cart tours that will take you to all of the famous, dead, people. It is a great place to visit. I have given you 2 of... More

Thousands of confederate soldier are here as is James Madison, John Tyler, Jefferson Davis, JEB Stuart. 90 foot granite pyramid built in 1869 memorializes the confederate dead.

I generally think visiting cemeteries is a bit morbid, but this was really nice. You're able to visit the graves of a couple presidents (Monroe and Tyler) as well as that of Jefferson Davis. It's got a very pretty view of the river. Plus, it's kind of surreal to see folks put out Confederate flags on many of the graves.

On our last visit to Hollywood, we took the tour. Our guide (through the Valentine Museum) was well informed, thorough and a good story teller. As a devoted visitor of cemeteries around the world, I am always impressed with Hollywood's constant current of visitors- no fear that you will be the only living person wandering the stones! As cemeteries were... More

My father and I booked a tour on a summer day and had a great experience. I was worried about my dad in the heat for an extended time, but our wonderful tour guide kept us in the shade and with water in hand, we thoroughly enjoyed our very historically informative tour!!! Our guide had a passion for the cemetery's... More
