We visited Rose Hill while on a road trip to Atlanta for a show. If you are a fan of the Allman Brothers, you should definitely stop by.

Loved the visit to Rose Hill Cemetery. There is so much history in this cemetery. I dream of having a guided tour in warm weather where I can look and pursue my interests.

This is a beautiful place. We went to see the Allman Brothers graves and others that were important to them- but it is so much more than that. A must see if you’re in the area.

It's an interesting place to visit. It covers a very large area. It has a Hebrew section, Catholic section, and a civil war soldier section. Too much to see in just one day.

We would have looked up the Allman Brothers if time permitted, but it took us too long to find my husband's relatives who are also here. His ancestors are from Macon, so we came to visit them! The cemetery is huge and the narrow roads...More
