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.

As Friends of Shockoe Hill Cemetery 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.
