We did a drive through of the cemetery during the day so it wasn't too spooky. I liked that they have arrows marking the way to president's circle which is what I'm sure most people are going for. It has a few really nice views in the cemetery also, so that was unexpected.

PROS: free, you can pay $1 for a map to find your favorite people in the cemetery. Read the articles at their website before going to orient you about it. Interesting old monuments and mausoleums ! I like the 3 car parking area by the President’s circle.

CONS: the Jefferson Davis monument was under renovation so I was disappointed to not be able to take the pics I wanted.

This was a very interesting place to visit. We saw graves of Presidents Tyler and Monroe. My young kids liked reading the years on the stones.

I think of cemeteries as people museums and there are certainly a variety of notable Richmond residents here. Lots of very nice mature trees and unique monuments. Be sure to see President Monroe’s grace. It’s beautiful. It’s a little tricky to find but look for the highest point with a view of the river.

Husband and I drove through, he had never been there before. Saw some of the more notable sites within the cemetery and of course, the beautiful view of the river.
