Richmond, Virginia

Focus on Hollywood Cemetery:  On a hill overlooking the James River in Hollywood Cemetery is the final resting place of two U.S. Presidents. Here lie the remains of the 10th:  John Tyler. Hollywood Cemetery was a first-generation "rural cemetery" made necessary by the expansive growth of the city and the limitations of churchyards in town. It was laid out on the hilly land west of Richmond and became the final resting place of Virginia's elite. [2015]
