President James Monroe’s Tomb 
Nicknamed “The Birdcage”, this architectural masterpiece was designed in an ornate Gothic Revival style by architect Albert Lybrock in 1859. It contains the remains of President James Monroe, the fifth president of the United States, who was reinterred in Hollywood Cemetery in 1858. His tomb was added to the National Historic Landmark Registry in 1971.

President John Tyler’s monument
John Tyler, the tenth president of the United States, was buried at Hollywood Cemetery in 1862. His death was the only one in presidential history to not be officially recognized in Washington D.C. because of his allegiance to the Confederate States of America. He requested a simple burial, but Confederate President Jefferson Davis hosted a grand event, complete with a Confederate flag draped over the coffin. His monument stands not far from President James Monroe’s in Presidents Circle.

Davis Circle
The only president of the Confederate States of America, Jefferson Davis was buried in Hollywood Cemetery beneath a life-sized statue. His family is also buried nearby.

Monument to the Confederate War Dead
This famed 90-foot pyramid stands as a monument to the 18,000 Confederate soldiers buried in Hollywood Cemetery. It was created through the efforts of the women of the Hollywood Memorial Association, who tended the graves of the Confederate dead after the Civil War. They worked together to raise over $18,000 and commissioned the help of engineer Charles Henry Dimmock to design the pyramid.

View of the James River
The oldest feature of Hollywood is the James River that for eons has carried away tops of the Blue Ridge Mountains to create tidewater Virginia. It has been a source of pride as well as power in Richmond for many years. The river can be viewed from many spots in Hollywood Cemetery, but some of the best views are from the Palmer Chapel Mausoleum and Presidents Circle.

The Iron Dog
One of the most well-known monuments in Hollywood Cemetery is a cast-iron Newfoundland dog. The statue stands guard over the grave of a

little girl who died in 1862.
