Place of Rest

Sited on the banks of the James river, Hollywood Cemetery is an old and eminently respectable burial site. Established in 1847, the quiet setting is home to two U.S. Presidents, Monroe and Tyler, and the Confederate president, Jefferson Davis. Many soldiers of the Civil War are buried at Hollywood with simple markers, along with prominent families of Richmond with elegant monuments.
