This is 1 of the most beautiful cemeteries I've ever seen/been to. It rivals those in New Orleans. It's next to the Ocmulgee ( which means old muddy river) & has graves back to the Early 1800's. There are some absolutely beautiful statuary & mausoleums. It has a narrow road that winds its way thru, but it's really best just... More

I'm one of those who always pull over for an interesting cemetery. I was a bit lost in Macon and happened upon this place. It's a little hard to drive through, the roads are a little tight. Pretty place. Lots of history. Of course, Bonaventure is better but this one is pretty cool.

Great place to stop, learn, take photos and reflect on life. I love visiting local cemeteries of places I travel, and this was exceptional.

If you love history, Macon GA is rich in it....and Rose Hill Cemetery is proof. Rose Hill spreads out over acres of rolling hills bordering the Ocmulgee River. It's the final resting place for thousands of people including many famed individuals. The Macon Historical Society conducts two "Rose Hill Rambles" each year...one on the Sunday following Easter Sunday, and one... More

This is a HUGE cemetery and the layout of the grounds is very interesting. You can drive everywhere but it gets pretty narrow in some parts that you may need to park and walk to where you want to be. One of the most beautiful cemeteries I have every seen. Highly recommend!

I only stopped in for a short visit here upon recommendation from other travelers. Overlooking the river and the city, this large and historic cemetery is one of the most beautiful I've visited yet. Though I caution those with large vehicles to just park your car at the entrance and walk the grounds. I drive a mini and some of... More

I know people don't generally get into visiting cemeteries, but the history and magic of this place is unbelievable. I have never been to a more beautiful cemetery. Wear walking shoes and spend the afternoon on a sunny day. Adjacent to the river. Beautiful and historic gravestones. Visited for my second time just this past weekend. Well worth the walking,...

Great place to walk around it, some very beautiful grave markers. It is sad also to see the decay of some of the older graves, as the tombstones are no longer readable.

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
