This was our favorite stop in Macon. It seems to go on forever and is the final resting place for many famous and influential people. It's a definite must stop on your next visit.

Found the cemetery easily. No attendants available but they did have a map where you could easily locate sites of interest. We easily found the location of Duane Allman and Berry Oakley. What a peaceful resting place. Wish we had had more time to stroll...More

As a Allman Brothers fan this was a must see while passing thru Macon. Research and it is easy to find. As others have mentioned roads are narrow but Rose Hill is easy to find. Must see for any fans in the area.
