Rose Hill is not only beautiful with its Gothic like architecture, but also is home to famous musicians such as Duane Allman. If you're visiting the area, stop by and take a gander.

I went solely for the purpose of visiting the graves of Duane Allman and Berry Oakley. Beautiful old cemetery. Well kept. Scenic. Difficult to drive through the old section because of the hilliness and narrowness of the driveways.

Take a few moments and drive through the beautiful and a historic Rose Hill cemetary. Monuments and markers have withstood the test of time and the elements.

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...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...More
