Hollywood Forever Cemetery: A Road Trip Divas Fieldtrip
There are many unique markers, mausoleums and such, but one of the most elaborate is that of father and son acting duo, Douglas Fairbanks Sr and Jr.
Hollywood Forever is a cemetery unlike any other in the world.
One of the world’s most fascinating landmarks, Hollywood Forever Cemetery is the final resting place to more of Hollywood’s founders and stars than anywhere else on earth.
Founded in 1899, the cemetery was an integral part of the growth of early Hollywood.
The cemetery of choice for most of the founders of Hollywood’s great studios, as well as writers, directors, and, performers, Hollywood Forever Cemetery is now listed on the National Register of Historic Sites.
Visitors come from all over the world to pay respects to Johnny Ramone, Cecil B. DeMille, Jayne Mansfield, Rudolph Valentino, Douglas Fairbanks, and hundreds more of Hollywood’s greatest stars.
There are also some amazing things living there….PEACOCKS!
