This is primarily a Confederate Cemetery. But the big draw is the fact that Duane Allman, Gregg Allman and Berry Oakley of the Allman Brothers are all buried here. If you look hard enough you can even find the tombstone where Dickey Betts got the...More

Being Allman Brothers fans, we wanted to go to Rose Hill Cemetery to visit their gravesites. Being very old, the cemetery is interesting and beautiful, unlike the flat,stark modern cemeteries. Locating the graves can be a little tricky, but we had a map from the...More

One of the oldest cemeteries in the south east. So much history here. The train passing through definitely adds character. Don't forget to pay your respects to Little Martha & bring her flowers to hold. Also make sure you swing by The Allman Brothers graves.

We like to go through old cemeteries and read the verses and see the dates. Sometimes there is a brief history of the person on the tombstone. This might not be for just anyone but my husband and I like history.

This headstones are astonishing. I didn’t take photos because I thought it would be disrespectful. A majority of them are from the 1800s. You can drive through & take a look at how the plots are set up. The burial areas are also separated by...More

Having grown up near Mt. Auburn Cemetary in Cambridge, MA, we were very interested to see Rose Hill. Though its 100 acres smaller than Mt. A., Rose Hill lives up to the second half of its name. We were worn out from climbing after two...More
