Famous Burials of Hollywood Cemetery
According to a handout from the Library of Virginia "Hollywood Cemetery was formally dedicated June 25, 1849.  Designed by architect and landscape designer John Notman, Hollywood was modeled after the rural cemeteries popular during the mid 19th century.  In addition to providing a place for burials, these cemeteries were designed for the living to enjoy a natural, park-like setting.  When James Monroe was reinterred there on July 5, 1858, the prestige of Hollywood was established.  More than 18,000 Civil War soldiers and officers were buried there, solidifying Hollywood's place of importance in the hearts of Virginians.  Hollywood continues as an active cemetery, visited frequently by tourists and locals who come to visit ancestral and notable gravesites, to admire the extensive examples of mortuary art and decorative cast iron, and to enjoy the lovely grounds and picturesque views."
