 To Whom It May Concern,

My wife and I recently visited Richmond, and by accident we ended up at Oakwood Cemetery.
Upon trying to get more info on this location, have been discouraged. It seems that this beautiful
place is not mentioned near as much as Hollywood Cemetery.
From our photos we seem to think that Oakwood is as nice as Hollywood and has a lot more as far
as history goes. I don?t what the surrounding area around Hollywood is, but we could tell the area
around Oakwood may be a little rough.
I would think the City of Richmond would really take stern measures to preserve such beauty and history.
Instead of just doing little to nothing and not even working to get interest from tourist.

Sincerely A Native Virginian,
TC
