Beautiful cemetery. Tons of history and beauty all around. Ghost stories can be found to make a trip through the grounds even more fun around Halloween.

This is a very interesting place to visit. A lot of history is learned just walk around and read the memorials.

I've never been on an official tour of the place, but the cemetery is lovely (and free) to walk around on a warm day, and there are many beautiful vantage points of the river and city.

There are 4 "presidents" buried here including James Monroe and Confederate President Jefferson Davis. With several signers of US Founding Documents and US Supreme Court Justice. The parking is difficult and some of the grave-sites are on a hill.

Although it's a burial spot it's also a magnificent place for autumn colors. Some of the most spectacular views of the James can be caught from this cemetery. Go explore you'll be glad the ghostbusters are fictional.

Absolutely gorgeous cemetery. Some groundwork could be done, but it did not detract from our visit at all.

One of the most scenic places in Richmond. Bring a camera. You can take photos of the resting places of Presidents Monroe and Tyler, beautiful angels statues, or the view overlooking the James River.
