Hebrew Cemetery

-A A +A
Hospital St.

Throughout most of the nineteenth century, Hebrew Cemetery served as the final resting place for much of Richmond's Jewish community. The monuments, which are oriented to the east in accordance with tradition, are generally restrained in ornamentation. Of interest is the Neo-Gothic chapel of 1916. The Confederate section is fenced by stacked arms is one of the most fascinating examples of cast iron design in Richmond.
