Rose Hill Cemetery, Macon Georgia

Gregg Allman was laid to rest in Rose Hill Cemetery in Macon last Saturday, near to the graves of Duane Allman and Berry Oakley. The band hung out at Rose Hill in their early days, and Dicky Betts titled his song, In Memory of Elizabeth Reed, after the name on a headstone here. If you are heading down I-75 on your way to Florida or the Georgia coast, take a break and visit Rose Hill. IMHO it's the grandest cemetery in Georgia, and as beautiful as any park in the state.
