Cemetery notes and/or description:
Glendale National Cemetery is located in Henrico County, approximately 13 miles southeast of Richmond, and is generally closed to new interments. This cemetery was established May 7, 1866, on land purchased from a local resident, Lucy C. Nelson. The cemetery name is taken from the farm located on this property, which served as a Union headquarters during the Civil War. Original interments were the remains of Union soldiers recovered from Malvern Hill, Frayer’s Farm, Harrison’s Landing and other areas in the vicinity. An inspector’s report of July 26, 1871, notes a total of 1,189 interments, including 236 known and 953 unknown gravesites. The cemetery is composed of a nearly square plan, with the graves laid out in picturesque, concentric rows. Glendale National Cemetery was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1996.
