I have been to Hollywood Cemetery numerous times and I always see something new each time I go. It is especially spooky at Halloween time. I am amazed at the number of beautiful trees that are there, some of which are original (designed in 1847)....More

This large cemetery has some major historical figures buried here (Confederate President) as well as some quirky spots. Nice location right next to the river too. We even brought the kids and they enjoyed it too.

Hollywood Cemetery is a beautiful, winding walk through history. The paved road is hilly, but there is a lot of shade as well as places to rest.

I wish the navigation was a bit easier, but this is the most beauitful cemetery I've ever seen. It takes a while to get to Jefferson Davis's tomb, so try not to second-guess yourself if you've missed your turn! Lovely, please allow lots of time...More
