Things to do in Macon. We visited Duane and Berry as well. It was kind of hard to find. The roads are narrow and the hot day we went, the state prisoners were doing grass cutting. Upon maneuvering past some old Confederate graves, we drove near the tracks, only to find the prison van and trailer blocking the road. It... More

We came to see Rose Hill cemetery our first night. It was beautiful and peaceful. However because it was built in the 1800s the streets are narrowed. The scariest part is there was a tree blocking our path and we had to back up, which if you ever been you would know it's hilly and scary! However solider square was... More

My wife and I took our oldest grandson (16) to Rose Hill this morning. This place is full of history. Many old tombstones and lots of past prominent Maconites rest here. You can spend days in here if you have the time. Cemetery was opened in 1840. Many of those buried here were born in the late 1700's. It will... More

I've visited this Historic Cemetery 3 times over the last 8 years and absolutely LOVED my past 2 visits. This recent one however left me ANGRY and disappointed. WEEDS atop the burial plots, grounds had NOT been mowed as they once spotlessly were, lovely natural pond areas had overgrown to the point that they were BARELY recognizable, and downed limbs...

I have always wanted to stop and see their graves. It was 5 minutes off of the Interstate. Found a you tube video that took us right to their graves.

We visited here to see some of the Allman Brothers history and were highly impressed with the scenery, topography and unique headstones. By far, this was the most unique cemetery I've ever visited. A work of caution, however; the side roads are VERY narrow and curvy, so I'd advise against driving a large vehicle through there.

In Macon, they treat their dead better than the living: this cemetery is lovelier than any park in Macon. Too bad. If you have only one day in Macon, check it out.

We spend quite a bit of time both driving and walking through this HUGE cemetery. So many of the grave stones are flat on the ground and many with information on the lives of those intered. We really enjoyed our visit to this well kept cemetery

I'm a huge Allman Brothers Band fan. Rose Hill is worth a few hours of your time if you are in Macon! Visit Duane & Berry for a bit, then make sure you see the nearby graves of Elizabeth Reed and Little Martha who inspired some of Duane's best songs!
