Hollywood - Part three - The End

This is the last of the posting of Hollywood Cemetary. The Mausoleums and a few of the beautiful monuments to various persons laid to rest here. 

Mausoleums built into the side of the hill.

It has been said , they are haunted. 
There is a few stories floating around as to why and those stories  can be found if you do a search on the internet.

Beautiful stained glass in on of the mausoleums.

I was told by a visitor I met in the cemetary this day, that this stone monument  was a whisper wall.  
 I sat  on one end and Carolyn sat on the other,  my voice did carry to the other side .  We could carry on a conversation sitting on opposite ends;  speaking barely above a whisper.  I can't find anything that says this is what it is really called.


  1. This is just so cool. I don't think I have ever been to Hollywood Cemetary and I thought I had. Wow.

  2. I love the pictures of holly wood cemetary. Have never been down there and lived in Richmond my whole life. Well will definately have to go there the next time i come down.
