Welcome to historic Shockoe Hill Cemetery!

We hope that you find these pages both informative and compelling. Here you can learn about our upcoming Events, discover ways you can help including both active participation in projects as well as financial support, and gain insights into the history of this place. And, while you are here, please sign our Guestbook.

The Friends of Shockoe Hill Cemetery invite you to discover this historic gem just north of downtown Richmond. Stroll among the stones that represent a "who's who" in Richmond, Virginia and U.S. history. Enjoy the plants, trees and animals that live in the cemetery, and marvel at the beauty and artistry of the monuments that span three centuries.

It is our mission to be stewards of Richmond's oldest city-owned cemetery, dedicated to celebrating its history, restoring its beauty, and educating the public on its place in community life. The Friends of Shockoe Hill Cemetery is a proud partner of "Verdant Richmond", a non-profit organization through which we have status as a 501(c)(3) entity. See our member page on the Verdant Richmond site, and make a secure online donation, at  https://verdantrichmond.org/friends-of-shockoe-hill-cemetery/

We'll see you around the Cemetery!

Yours in History,

The Friends of Shockoe Hill Cemetery
