We visited the grave of Duane Allman and Berry Oakley on our way to the Allman Brothers Museum. Wish we would have had more time to explore the cemetary. We've seen this cemetary from the interstate for years, but have never stopped here.

Of course, being as we are old rock fans, we went to see Berry and Duane's graves. Aside from that, Rose Hill is most definitely a wonderful place to visit. Macon history abounds. The cemetery sits on a hillside so all the family plots lie on terraces. That alone makes it an interesting view. It dates from 1840 so many,... More

Nice place to stroll and enjoy the river views........in the Fall!!! Oppressively hot and muggy this time of year. Have been there many times but wilted after 45 minutes.Great place to take photos. Graffiti on the brick walls leading to graves of Duane and Berry was a little disturbing. Why do people feel the need to deface things. One reason... More

Stopped by to visit the Duane Allman and Berry Oakley grave site. (when you find it they DO grease the fence) Thought it would be a ten minute stop. However this place is huge with massive history and very old sites. There is a map in the entrance to find them. Open to the public and free. Very interesting and... More

Rose Hill, designed by Simri Rose as a cemetery to welcome it's visitors. There were bandstands back in the day. There are many cemeteries within the confines of Rose Hill. The general portion, the Confederate, Jewish, Catholic cemeteries. While rambling look for the graves of a brave dog who was in the army. And the family cemetery that also contains... More

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.
