Description

Rose Hill Cemetery is located in Macon, Georgia, United States. The cemetery opened in 1840. The cemetery is part of a self-guided walking tour of Macon and is the site of the semi-annual Rose Hill Ramble sponsored by the Middle Georgia Historical Society. It was designed by Simri Rose. Rose was instrumental in the planning of The City of Macon and planned Rose Hill Cemetery, in return for being able to choose his own burial plot. The cemetery was a hangout and artistic inspiration for the Allman Brothers Band during their early years. The Allman Brothers' slide guitarist Duane Allman, keyboardist and vocalist Gregg Allman, and bassist Berry Oakley are interred here, side by side. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.-Wikipedia This also includes the section known as Oak Ridge, the traditional African-American burial ground. More history of this Rose Hill Cemetery can be found at http://rosehillcemetery.org/directory/ Oak Ridge Cemetery was laid out at about the same time that Rose Hill Cemetery was. This cemetery served as the final resting place of countless numbers of slaves who were buried on the plots that their owners bought for them. Unfortunately, most of these graves are unmarked.
