Very interesting cemetery. Very old tombstones. Many Civil War soldiers buried here. The roads can be tricky. We have a 250 truck and couldn't drive on some of the roads, too narrow. It is better to get out and walk around. You don't see headstones...More

I've been going by Rose Hill for years. It's the final resting ground of three of the Allman Brothers, and, with the late Gregory Allman buying 10 lots, it would be nice if Butch, Red Dog, and others were interred together. There's other locations as...More

This cemetery contains many beautiful and even historic grave sites. There is a confederate soldier section as well as a wonderful Jewish section. It was designed to be walked and has enough hills to provide a challenge, or you can drive through it. The markers...More

With Duane Allman and Berry Oakley being buried here among other notable people from Georgia's past this is a cemetery to come and see. It is also on the US National Register of Historic Places.

We explored for about half an hour. Some nice monuments but most were not very impressive. One section has some 800 confederate gravesites. Setting and terracing on the rolling hills is well dome.
