Hollywood Cemetery

Hollywood Cemetery, a national treasure located in Richmond, Va., is open to the public from 8am – 6pm. Whether you’re enjoying a walk through the winding paths, visiting the grave of a loved one or participating in an organized tour, this spectacular outdoor museum has plenty of stories to tell. Much more than a cemetery, Hollywood is a living story in stone, iron and landscape. Designed in 1847 by noted architect John Notman of Philadelphia, Hollywood has been a fully-operational cemetery since the 19th century. It serves as the final resting place for two American presidents, six Virginia governors, two Supreme Court justices, twenty-two Confederate generals and thousands of Confederate soldiers. In addition, Hollywood accommodates many deceased loved ones from the Richmond community and beyond.

Smithsonian

The Smithsonian Institution is the world’s largest museum, education, and research complex, with 19 museums and the National Zoo—shaping the future by preserving our heritage, discovering new knowledge, and sharing our resources with the world.
