Take Your Place in History

Hollywood Cemetery has been a fully operational cemetery since the 19th century. Established as a garden cemetery, its natural landscape and beautiful architecture quickly became a haven for Richmonders and continues to draw visitors from around the world. Throughout the years, it has become much more than a cemetery -- offering a living story in stone, iron, and landscape to its visitors from near and far. Lots, crypts, and niches are still available for purchase throughout its rolling hills and valleys, so you can take your place in history among presidents, generals, authors, and other famous notables.

ArbNet - Accredited Arboretum - Level 1

Hollywood Cemetery is a recognized arboretum with the ArbNet Arboretum Accreditation Program. Hollywood Cemetery was designed in 1847 in the “rural” style to escape the grid-like monotony of city cemeteries. Its paths wind over 135 acres—through valleys, over hills and beneath stately trees, the most outstanding of which are featured in a tree brochure. There are over 2,000 trees in the Cemetery today; some have been here since the Cemetery was established.  Learn More
