We all loved driving through this cemetery rich in history and overlooking the James River. Definitely worth the visit! Be sure to find the graves of Presidents Monroe and Tyler. You’ll also find Jefferson Davis further back.

This garden-style cemetery can be walked (wear comfortable footwear and be prepared to spend several hours) or driven through carefully. Its gravestones and statuary are typical of their eras, and are poignant reminders of how present death, particularly of the young, was in earlier times....More

I love walking through here and checking out the older graves. Definitely a cool place to stop by! If you don’t want to walk, you can drive through instead! I recommend wearing comfy shoes if you choose to walk, there’s a lot of inclines.

The original area of the cemetery has a vast collection of ornate, 19th-century funerary monuments throughout with the earliest being carved in white marble in a variety of Classical and Picturesque styles. And of course true to the time there are still some elaborate black...More

I live in Richmond and use the cemetery as a place to run on a regular basis. I see many travelers try to make their way through the cemetery with map in hand. The trick is to follow the blue line on the road...It's about...More
