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.

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
