My 13 yr old son actually asked to visit this spot when we read about it in a hotel guidebook. It is beautiful and peaceful and the "road" through the cemetery was quite an adventure in itself! We took lots of photos, and he enjoyed seeing the "ancient" tombstones. Wear comfortable walking shoes.

I never thought I would enjoy walking through a cemetery but I loved this. It was interesting seeing how long people had been laid to rest there. They also have many statues to honor certain people that had done great things. We also looked at the soldiers markers. If you have the chance take a stroll through it.

We enjoy old cemeteries for the history. You never know what you will find on a tombstone and for that reason we always take our camera so we can read them later. This particular cemetery has narrow roads circling it to the top. Some roads are closed off and most all of them are on the edge so you're at... More

Great old cemetery with lots of Civil War graves as well as the Tomb of the Known soldier. Was one of the more unique cemeteries I've been to.

Great place to visit. Lots of history in this place. Many of the statues were once on Broad Street in Rome, Georgia. There is a website app available for iPad. I recommend you "Google" Myrtle Hill Cemetery, Rome, Georgia, for more information. You might be surprised by what you learn!
