One half-mile north, Ivy Hill Cemetery, established in 1887, is the resting place of many prominent local residents including Joseph W. Luter, Sr., Smithfield Packing Company co-founder, and P.D. Gwaltney Jr., founder of Gwaltney Hams. Others buried here include U.S. Congressmen Joel Holleman and Dr. John W. Lawson; Richard Randolph "Dick" Turner, second in command of Richmond Libby Prison during the Civil War; leading business and community leaders; and many veterans. The cemetery monuments and landscaping make it a fine example of the rural cemetery movement. It was listed on the Virginia Landmarks Register and National Register of Historic Places in 2006.
