The Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond is not the burial place of Hollywood stars. In fact, the eminent personalities of Virginia like the Confederate President and generals and the past President of the United States like John Tyler and James Monroe are buried here. Built like a garden along the banks of the river James, the cemetery makes for a nice afternoon walk as you walk past the graves of those that played an important part in shaping and molding history.

This cemetery is definitely worth a visit. There are some unusual and interesting finds. The views of the James River are spectacular from parts of the cemetery. The monuments are interesting and old. Quite a few well known people are buried here; two former presidents, Jefferson Davis to name a few.
I love this cemetery. There are so many interesting and historic personages buried here. I could walk around here for hours. It puts one in a contemplative mood of course, and I always bring small rocks to lay on the graves I stop by as a token of visit (per Jewish tradition). I like to spend time by the graves of the Davis family and the Jewish Confederate monument. A number of US presidents buried here too.
Such an incredibly beautiful venue to walk and remember the past. The grounds are breathtaking and the historical figures interred here are awesome. I had no idea two American presidents are here. The grounds have a beautiful sweeping view of the River James. I felt honored to peruse through the grounds.
Amazing cemetery to drive, or walk, around. This cemetery is huge, with so many old, incredibly artistic tombstones. Two presidents, John Tyler and James Madison, are buried here. The view of the James river from the top of the hill where the president's are buried, is picturesque. Overall, do not miss the opportunity to check this place out.
Hollywood Cemetery is attractive and peaceful. It is pleasant for walking or jogging. Presidents James Madison and John Tyler are buried there. For Civil War enthusiasts, there is a Confederate section.
