Nov. 24, 9 am Oregon Hill and Part B Hollywood Cemetery

We will begin at Stuart Circle in the Fan.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Parking is available on the 4th (top) level of the parking structure across Lombardy Street from One Monument Avenue apartments and behind the First English Lutheran Church.

The address of the church is 1603 Monument Ave, Richmond, VA 23220.



Below is a view looking north.  Notice Stuart Circle in the background and One Monument Avenue Apartment to the right.



We will assemble here at the front of One Monument Avenue.



Then hike through historical Oregon Hill

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

on our way to Hollywood Cemetery.

There we will explore the portion nearest to the James River.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I predict the hike will be about 4 miles and take about 4 hours.


This hike will be unique in that it will be a lot of history and only 4 miles of hiking.  It is a good opportunity for those who are interested in digging deep into the lives of some of Hollywood's most notable residents.


For those who want a longer hike with more moving and less talking this one is not for you.

    Question #1: What is it about Catherine Hodges that makes her unique at Hollywood Cemetery?
    Hint - What is a vivandiers, sometimes known as a cantiniere? Question #2: Why is the question of who was the first
    Confederate to fall in battle so convoluted?

    If you had braved the cold with us this morning you'd know the answers. Actually, it wasn't so cold that everyone agreed it was a fine day to hike Hollywood Cemetery. As is predictable with our hikes, we got serious exercise, learned a lot and connected with fellow locals we are the better off for having spent the morning with.

    My apologies, but a schedule conflict required I change the date of this Hollywood Cemetery - Part B hike.

    I have rescheduled it from October 20 to Nov. 24 at 9 am.

    Please review your availability, and if necessary revise your RSVP accordingly .

    I didn't realize how long this one is, I need to start with something abit less ambitious.

    I have to do USO at midday so I think that would be cutting it close. I'll have to catch this in rotation. Have fun!
