This is the book everyone was waiting for when it was published. If you love Richmond's historic Hollywood Cemetery, you will adore this book, as well as use it as a treasured resource. When Hollywood was created in the 1840s, Antebellum Americans were looking to places like Hollywood's green spaces in urban areas for recreation and relaxation. Named for the many indigenous holly trees in the area, noted landscape architect John Notman gave his clients more for their money than they ever imagined. The necropolis of Hollywood was created as much for the living as it was for the dead. Mary Mitchell is a gifted writer who gave us all a great gift with this well researched and competently crafted book. in addition to being the final resting place for presidents as well as Pulitzer Prize winners, it is also one of historic Richmond's finest landmarks. There is a fascinating story around every gorgeously designed hill and valley in this landscape. Throw this book in the car, and follow the blue line as you explore Hollywood Cemetery on your own. It will be the beginning of a lifelong love for this great space.
