02Hollywood Cemetery

The large, sprawling Hollywood Cemetery was established in 1847. Overlooking James River and with rolling hills and winding paths, this tranquil part of Richmond is the resting place of a number of famous Virginian figures. Confederate States President Jefferson Davis is interred here, along with US Presidents James Monroe and John Tyler, and Ellen Glasgow the Pulitzer Prize-winning author. Pay your respects at the pyramid-shaped memorial that looms over the graves of thousands of enlisted Confederate soldiers.
