The Hollywood Cemetery is one of the many staple locations in the heart of Richmond,VA. It is located overlooking the James River. There’s an awesome view of the James River by Monroe’s grave.
Now don’t let the name fool you into thinking there are any Hollywood celebrities buried here, it’s more about historical celebrities like two United States Presidents, James Monroe and John Tyler. If you didn’t guess by the names of the two presidents, this is a very old cemetery. It was established in 1849. Its name, “Hollywood,” came from the holly trees dotting the hills of the property.
