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.

Beautiful, for a cemetery. Or at least, as beautiful as the sort of sad place can be.
The best place on earth is to be 6 ft under -A
Love to go walking through this beautiful old cemetery. Lots of history and have taken some of the tours also. Love to watch the trains go by alongside the river!
There are congressmen and rockstars buried there. Also, the lay of the land helps to mute the sounds of the city. If you drive in a little ways, it's suddenly a little quieter, and a little more peaceful. It's really something that must be experienced. It's a beautiful place to walk or run, and it's on the National Registry of historic places.
Love this place tons of history. Take your time going thru the cemetery. Awesome places to visit in the cemetery are Soldier's Square, Allman Brothers Final Resting Place and the Hebrew and Jewish Burial area. We love this place and discover new things each time we visit.
