Established in 1847, Hollywood Cemetery is a fully operational cemetery located in Richmond, Virginia. Designed in 1847 by noted architect John Notman of Philadelphia, Hollywood Cemetery is known as a garden cemetery, a landscape style that became popular in the 19th century.
This impressive and gorgeously landscaped cemetery contains the graves of President Jefferson Davis, Gen. J.E.B. Stuart, Gen. George E. Pickett, and other Confederate notables, as well as 18, 000 Confederate soldiers. Presidents James Monroe and John Tyler are also buried at this site.
The cemetery is still operated by a private company, and maintenance and restoration efforts are now aided by a nonprofit group, the Friends of Hollywood Cemetery, founded in 2007. The Friends have continued to beautify the grounds by funding the construction of new overlooks and completing many conservation projects.
