Cemetery notes and/or description:
Hollywood Cemetery gates are open every day, 8 am to 5 pm. The on-site records office is open weekdays only, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Opened in 1849, Hollywood Cemetery is a large and sprawling cemetery designed in the rural garden style, characterized by rolling hills and winding paths overlooking the James River, with its name Hollywood coming from the holly trees dotting the hills of the property. It is the resting place of two United States Presidents, James Monroe and John Tyler, as well as the only Confederate States President, Jefferson Davis. It is also the resting place of 25 Confederate Generals, more than any other cemetery in the country, including George Pickett and J.E.B. Stuart. In 1869 a 90-foot high granite pyramid was built as a memorial to the more than 18,000 enlisted men of the Confederate Army buried in the cemetery, often characterized as the Confederate National Cemetery. Rich in history, there are many local legends surrounding certain tombs and grave sites in the cemetery.
