My husband and I went to visit the graves of Duane Allman and Berry Oakley. We found their graves rather quickly. I was rather surprised at the size of this place! We were going to explore further when it began to rain. We left abruptly so I was rather disappointed that we had to leave. Would return in a heartbeat... More

Very nice cemetery. Saw one person buried that was born in the 1700's. The grave stones and monuments are amazing. The grounds are well kept and the hills make the cemetery unique. The interior road can be hazardous though. I drove a Toyota Tundra (older and smaller model) along the roads in the cemetery and some are seriously tight. I... More

This is a must for the ABB fans visiting Macon. Duane and Berry are both buried here as well as Elizabeth Reed, inspiration for one of the best pieces of music the ABB produced (my opinion). We met some really interesting fans here.

I was working on a photography assignment and was in the cemetary taking pictures when my iternal alarm went off. There was a guy following me around and it made me very uncomfortable... I got to my car as fast as I could and got out of there. Ladies, don't go alone! I remember growing up always hearing stories about... More

Rose Hill Cemetery is a unique cemetery in Macon, Georgia. If you like history and don't mind some hills to climb, this will make an interesting afternoon.

Civil war soldiers, rolling hills, historic graves and tombs, couple of famous Allman Brothers' band members, what's not to like. Do yourself a favor and take one of the Ramble tours if you can. You will be glad you did. A history buff's dream.

Came to pay my respects to Duane Allman but was pleasantly surprised by the beauty of the cemetery. Walked around for a bit and read some fascinating stories. Loved it!

Very well kept (and HUGE) cemetery. Driving through it can be tricky, and it's too big to "walk". Very interesting though.

Though this is a cemetery and the resting place of thousands, one forgets with the peaceful, rolling hills. We enjoyed walking around some of the narrow drives and reading the history lesson before us. The staff was nice, and just ask to be respectful and take out whatever you bring in. Beautiful area in our Macon town.
