This cemetery is located adjacent to the Riverside Cemetery in Macon, and the two sites flow into one another seamlessly. There are some wonderful monuments and grave markers to take in with the history that each represents. Combined with the great views of the city, this cemetery is a great place for a peaceful walk.
Very old cemetery with alot of history, especially Civil War. Be warned, do not drive into the cemetery, park outside the gate and walk through. It is a beautiful cemetery with plots on different levels, which makes driving very hard. Go to the Civil War Soldiers section. It is so sad to see so many graves and realize that's only... 更多
If you are in Macon doing Allman Brothers sightseeing, definitely go to the cemetery. Get a map at The Big House; you will definitely need it!! Also, listen to the volunteer's directions at The Big House or you will most likely get lost at this mammoth pre-Civil War cemetery. You can drive fairly close but there is a precipitous walk... 更多

The scariest part is there was a tree blocking our path and we had to back up, which if you ever been you would know it's hilly and scary! However solider square was... 更多
My wife and I took our oldest grandson (16) to Rose Hill this morning. This place is full of history. Many old tombstones and lots of past prominent Maconites rest here. You can spend days in here if you have the time. Cemetery was opened in 1840. Many of those buried here were born in the late 1700's. It will... 更多
I've visited this Historic Cemetery 3 times over the last 8 years and absolutely LOVED my past 2 visits. This recent one however left me ANGRY and disappointed. WEEDS atop the burial plots, grounds had NOT been mowed as they once spotlessly were, lovely natural pond areas had overgrown to the point that they were BARELY recognizable, and downed limbs... 更多
