I always enjoy old cemetery walks. It is a reminder of our own mortality and an opportunity to reflect. It is no wonder that this particular piece of ground provided inspiration for many of The Allman Brothers Band songs. For a fan, it is hallowed...More

The Allman Brothers are buried here, Duane, Gregg and Barry Oakley the Bass player for the band. When you go thru the gates, turn left and the graves are on the left. This is a memorial for the band and those that have passed.

I guess Rose Hill goes back about as far as Macon. 1820s or so. Macon's history is laid out in one tantalizing tree-framed epitaph after another. The unexpected scale of the Confederate cemetery comes charging down the hill at you as you round a curve...More
