Richmond's Hollywood Cemetery by John O. Peters, 2010

Haxall family plot, Hollywood Cemetery.

The digital scan of this image does not do it justice to how it appears in Richmond's Hollywood Cemetery. Author John O. Peters, who photographed the many color and black and white images in the book, has done an excellent job at telling the story of Hollywood Cemetery. The book (which also contains numerous historic images) was published by the Valentine Richmond History Center earlier this year. If you are interested in Richmond history, this book is a must to own. You will find it in your local book shop and at the Valentine Museum.
