This cemetery is a treasure in Rome, GA. You can view the entire city from the top of Myrtle Hill. Mrs. Ellen Axon Wilson(former first lady) is buried here.

Built in the 1800's, this cemetery is on the highest elevation in Rome, Georgia. The tombstones are interesting and diverse, the monuments are stately and well-maintained. No new graves here since about 1960, it is simply a historic site and a peaceful place to visit.

I'm not much for exploring cemeteries, but there are some cool statues, headstones, and amazing views of Rome from the top of Myrtle Hill.

Do much history along with an amazing view of the city. Wear comfortable shoes. The trees here and rock formations alone are worth the trip.

If you come to Rome, you have to visit this cemetery! You'll find lots of history here. Be prepared to walk/light hike because it is on a hill!

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.
