There are 2 US Presidents buried here if you are an American, and 3 if you are a southern American. Jefferson Davis, the President of the Confederacy is also buried here.

I first went to Hollywood Cemetery to see it after I had heard so much about it. I was overwhelmed with the beauty and emotions I felt. I saw the graves of presidents and other historical figures. It is all in a huge sprawling cemetery with nature all around. I last was there for an actual service and it was so touching. This is definitely one to visit if you get to Richmond.

The Cemetery is full of history. We took my brother, a Civil War buff, and he was fascinated with the graves from that period. You should definitely walk with a guide the first time, otherwise, you will miss too much. We have been a couple of times now with visitors to Richmond, and it is always lovely and interesting.

The Cemetery has a lot of history and is a nice place to walk and enjoy the scenario along the James River. It has Presidents and other famous people buried in it. The slopping hills and easy walk for most. You can spend many hours walking around it, or you can drive it if you cannot walk. It is dog friendly and great place to enjoy nature with the family.

If you are into historical sites this cemetary can't be beat. There are graves from the 19th and 20th centuries. The graves are often large and elaborate. In addition there is a nice setting along the James River overlooking downton Richmond. Only drawback is that there is only one bathroom at the main entrance building.
