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 5th:  James Monroe. His grave is the focal point of President's Circle, but his body had to be brought here from New York in 1858. Hollywood Cemetery didn't even exist in 1831 when he died. [2015]
