Rode bike over here and had to walk the bikes up the steep road to the top. Lots of old graves with markers and had one section with just confederate soldiers. Very quite area in Rome. Some of the older grave stones were very difficult to read as they had not been cleaned in awhile.

Not sure why this is listed amongst the restaurants... But if you like history or cemeteries, or historical cemeteries (lol) this is the place for you! Angels abound here, each more lovely than the last. Cherubs and unusual markers and a smattering of "old money" families mausoleums as well as a newly constructed mausoleums dot this tiered hill in downtown... More

We loved visiting the Myrtle Hill cemetery as part of our visit to Rome, GA. The cemetery is well preserved, full of history, and a very peaceful place to visit. Way signs make it easy to get around and please note the entrance is one side, so if you feel like you're at an impasse, keep driving and look for... More

This cemetery has some really great angels that seem as if they are weeping. It also has the grave of Woodrow Wilson's wife which is one of the highlights.

Myrtle Hill Cemetery is a chance to see very interesting markers. It offers a panoramic view of the city. It will require careful walking and comfortable shoes. On special weekends they have excellent tour guides.

very hilly, wear comfortable shoes, only visit in daytime, dangerous area of town for night. Ellen Axson Wilson (former first lady) is buried here as well as many Civil War soldiers. Bring your camera--beautiful haunting place to visit.

It's a wonderful, historic place. The "known" soldier from WW1 is buried here. His mother didn't want him buried at Arlington Cemetery. There is so much history here and quite a few interesting monuments to those that have passed on.

A very Historic Cemetery in Downtown Rome, Georgia. This Cemetery is rich in history, From Dr. Battey who pioneered women's surgery to the first wife of President Woodrow Wilson are buried here. The cemetery is right downtown and has a multitude of Civil War graves here. I suggested taking a walking tour. However the hills are steep and the steps... More

I find it very odd that the number one attraction in Rome, GA is a cemetery. It is a nice place to take a walk with a pleasant view from the top. It is an easy walk to the top for someone of average fitness.

The road into this historic cemetery needs a little work, it is a one-way maze and all uphill. Not for those who might have a tendency to carsickness. That said, it is one of the most impressive cemeteries I have ever seen--built on a hill, and many old old graves. One can almost hear the Civil War songs as one... More
