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.

Beautiful old cemetery, needs a little more upkeep. Lots of old war plots, views of the river. Nice place to wonder and look for your family history. Quiet place.
