 Buckingham Slate: Hollywood Cemetery, Part II

Courtesy The Richmond Dispatch

Over the decades, Buckingham County’s famous slate has often graced buildings located far beyond the constraints of the county.

In 1898, The Richmond Dispatch printed an article about the new mortuary chapel at Hollywood Cemetery, which was topped with Buckingham County slate. The architect was Capt. M. J. Dimmock. Gothic in design, the building was built using James River granite. For more details about the “new” chapel, click and enlarge the image above.
