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.

  • Such a beautiful place for rest. Took a drive through the winding paths, spent time in reverence around the graves of the more notable buried there. SO much art in the tombstones and grave sites. Very enjoyable afternoon.

  • Absolutely beautiful cemetery! I love to walk around, enjoy the quiet, nature and read the old head stones. The architecture is very impressive. A lovely place to relax and discover some history.

  • Not an ordinary cemetery; instead, you'll find beautiful, shaded walking trails that bring you to scenic overlooks of the river and the Richmond skyline while surrounded with amazingly landscaped and detailed granite gave markers and stone mausoleums. It's really beautiful here and almost too large to cover in a day of hiking. You can drive through or take your bike. If biking, there are off-road trails that take you down to the river. If walking, there are plenty of shaded areas and benches to rest. There are lots of elevation changes so keep that in mind if you are bringing children or the elderly. There are walking tours (for a fee) most every day at 10am. Very cool place!

  • I'll admit I'm a bit of a history nerd. This tour tickles all the right spots. You get to learn a lot about not only famous dead people from Norfolk, but Victorian-era cemeteries in general. There are a lot of beautiful memorials in Elmwood Cemetery that have interesting stories. It would be a steal at twice the price (it's only a $5 recommended donation!) Excellent tour and a beautiful cemetery. I will definitely be back for the other themed tours they offer. Donations go to the Norfolk Society for Cemetery Conservation and are used directly to care for the grounds, stones, and monuments. Wear comfortable shoes and bring some water if it's hot.

  • Looking for my grandfather's burial plot. His name was David Shelton Richardson, born around 1875 and died around 1912.
