The Rose Hill Cemetery was established in the year 1840 and designed as a site where people could gather up and also to serve as the grounds for Rose Hill Ramble, that is celebrated every 2 years. The designer Simri Rose actually agreed to plan the construction of the cemetery in return for a burial place in the cemetery. In the past, the cemetery has also served as a source of inspiration and artistic pondering for the Allman Brothers Band, and some of the members are in fact buried at the very place. A visit to this cemetery will surely soothe the most jangled of nerves.

Rose Hill Cemetery, Macon Reviews - Write a Review

  • Beautiful cemetery. So much history. Gregg Allman, his brother and another band member are buried here. Worth the trip if you're passing through Macon. They hung out here by the railroad tracks and wrote many of their songs.

  • This is a beautiful cemetery and a MUST for taphophiles like me. It's huge, there's a train that rides by around 4pm, and in some places you can find hidden graves in overgrown roots and flora. Besides that it's where the Allman brothers got inspiration for a couple of songs and ultimately where they were laid to rest.

  • Very awesome. Duane Allman, Barry Oakley, Little Martha, Elizabeth Reed all buried there. Also, the Bond Memorial where album photo was shot. Absolutely beautiful.

  • I used to visit Rose Hill often when I lived in Warner Robins and Macon. I first got interested in it when I found out Duane Allman and Berry Oakley were buried there. It is also the burial site of Elizabeth Reed, the tomb stone that gave the Allman Brothers the inspiration for the song "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed". Very cool place to take pictures and walk around.

  • Beautiful old cemetery. The city holds a "spirit walk" through the cemetery every October. As you walk around the tour guide shares the history of the people buried there.
