Brief History of Hollywood Cemetery:

Designed and established in 1847 by noted architect John Notman, Hollywood Cemetery has been the resting place of many Richmond and national notables, including Presidents  John Tyler and James Monroe, 6 Virginia governors, 2 Supreme Court justices, prominent authors, suffragists and more.

James Monroe’s cast iron Gothic Revival canopy, often referred to as “the Birdcage,” was registered as a National Historic Landmark in 1968 by the National Park Service. Still a working cemetery, it has been regarded as an outdoor museum and green space for over a century. With over 2,000 trees on over 135 acres of winding pathways and gardens, Hollywood Cemetery was recognized as an arboretum by the ArbNet Arboretum Accreditation Program in 2017.
