Spring Schedule- Cemetery Tourism

We are in tour season and I am so excited! As you read in my last post, our local cemeteries have created so many great tours and volunteer opportunities for locals and visitors to the Richmond Region. The cost of these tours range from $0-$15 so be sure to check each listing.

We understand that not everyone can afford to take some of these tours.  Fortunately, there are so many free options! Here are just a few:

  1. If you have a Smart Phone, Hollywood Cemetery has an online virtual tour. If you don’t own a Smart Phone, the Girl Scout’s Hollywood Guide is available through a PDF file.
  2. Shockoe Hill Cemetery has tour maps in the box at the front of the cemetery (closest to Hebrew Cemetery).

Need some help planning?
If you would like to join the River City Cemetarians, here’s our Spring-Fall Schedule. Be sure to keep checking because we will be adding events throughout the season. Two helpful links: 
May 20- Woodland Cemetery Tour (Ashland, VA)
May 20- Highlights of VCU Student Projects
OCT 7- Edgar Allan Poe and Shockoe Hill Cemetery --yours truly will be giving this tour
DEC 23- Christmas Eve’s Eve at Hollywood Cemetery Walking Tour 
Hollywood Cemetery also has several walking tours scheduled through October. You can check out their schedule here.
