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.

A serene, quiet cemetery with beautiful and hilly grounds. Be cautious of the narrow roads and steps to some of the sites that are below road level.

Went for the sole purpose of visiting Duane Allman and Berry Oakley's graves. Basically like all other old city cemeteries. But for a fan, worth seeing.

Our spring trip through the south took us through Macon, GA where we toured "Allman Brothers" territory from the Big House Museum to Rose Hill Cemetery where Duane and Berry rest. This is probably the oldest cemetery I have toured. It is so beautiful. The first stone I recognized was "Little Martha" from the Allman Brothers song. I happened to... More

My fiance and I went there the other day. Been a while since I've been, first time for her. Lots of history, from governors to Duane Allman. And anything you want in between. Even a firehouse dog is buried here!! Definitely worth a couple of hours to get a small glimpse of Macon and southern history.

Amazing place to walk, explore history, and contemplate life or watch birds. I only wish they had a better map to guide you through the areas and to provide some historical perspective. They do have these items for sale, but the place was closed...so signage in the cemetery would be helpful.

This is a historic cemetary that is very well taken care of. The area is a popular place to get some exercise walking through the rolling hills along the Ocmulgee River.
