Hollywood Cemetery, Richmond, Virginia

Hollywood Cemetery Richmond Virginia

I lived in Richmond for six years and this is one of my favorite places in the world. It is in an old suburb called Oregon Hill. It’s acres and acres of rolling wooded hills and mature oaks and thousands of antebellum monuments to both dead Confederate soldiers and many presidents as well. Oregon Hill, when I lived there seemed to be a tiny enclave of xenophobic locals. One women parked in a pick up truck outside the gates told me “I’d rather live around dead Confederates than live Yankees.”
