My husband and I loved walking through this cemetery. The headstones were beautiful and plots were mostly well maintained. The soldiers' square was interesting and Informative. It was a great walk for a Sunday morning.

After seeing some of the Allman Brother sites in Macon, I wanted to see the cemetery wher Duane Allman and Berry Oakley are buried. Being a cemetery buff, this cemetery great for photos and some history. The only downside is, there's no street signs on the roads on the property so it can get confusing. The cemeter is hilly and not so huge that you can't see it all. I enjoyed my visit here and would gladly come back and visit again the next time I'm in Macon.

This cemetery is like going back in time. It is full of pre-civil war graves and family plots. The statues and stones tell a story alone. It is well kept and easy to manuever by car or foot. The hilly terrain gives a view to take in from all sides. Close by are several places to eat and hotels/motels are near as well. Macon is full of history and this is a good place to start the adventure!
