Found the cemetery easily. No attendants available but they did have a map where you could easily locate sites of interest. We easily found the location of Duane Allman and Berry Oakley. What a peaceful resting place. Wish we had had more time to stroll around, but it was getting later in the day when we arrived. Easy to understand... More

Duane Allman is buried here. The walking tour is easy and fun with the free map. The terraces are very pretty and the highway noise is muted. Since a section of this rural cemetery is built along the Ocmulgee River, there are many visitors on sunny spring days during cherry blossom season. We watched some of them making rubbings of...

It is impossible to describe the southern sweetness of this historic landmark that stretches across the banks of the Ocmulgee River on the Northwest corner of downtown. The ghosts whisper of hot southern nights in July gone by. If you are a fan of The Allman Brothers you get a sense of what it must have been like for them... More

Beautiful, and historic overlooking the Ocmulgee River. Many of Macon's pioneer's are buried here. Excellent to explore.

I was born in Macon and as I have grown older I am visiting many places that I overlooked on my trips to my birth place. I have been to Rose Hill a few times but I took time to really look around and explore it this time and it is as beautiful as any cemetery you will ever visit,... More

At the risk of sounding morbid, this is one of the most beautiful cemeteries I have ever seen. It is hilly and historic, be prepared to walk up and down. It is alongside a river and railroad tracks, but it was a place that the Allmans found serene enough to compose some awesome American music. Be sure to visit Duane... More

As a Allman Brothers fan this was a must see while passing thru Macon. Research and it is easy to find. As others have mentioned roads are narrow but Rose Hill is easy to find. Must see for any fans in the area.

This cemetery is fun to explore, and if you are an Allman Brothers band fan, there are lots of things to search for with ties to their music.

We were just passing through Macon with a couple of hours to spend. I saw Rose Hill on Trip Advisor and decided to make the effort to visit. It was well worth the time. It's hilly and you can see out over the many levels and terraces. Beautiful headstones and statues. We just drove around until we spotted something that... More
