Hello brothers and sisters. I'm going to Macon next week and I'm going to visit many places about ABB, like Rose Hill Cementery. I know where are Duane and Berry tombs, but I don't know where is the Elizabeth Reed one and the Bond tomb, in the back cover of the first album. And of course, do you know at what time is closed the Cemetery?
Thank you people.

Hello Paulamule,

I visited Macon for the first time last july and what I would suggest is this:

Find the Macon Downtown Visitors Center on 450 Martin Luther King Jr Blvd.

Stop in and let them know that you are there to see the Allman Brothers related sites in town. They will give you a map that points out all the places you are looking for including The Big House and Rose Hill.

I would also suggest eating as many meals as possible at the H & H (it's on the map) and visiting the Georgia Music Hall of Fame as well .

Have fun...!

And if you happen to run into Andrew or Tandan walking out of the H&H, please say 'Hello'.

Give Mama L a hug on your way out and don't forget to visit Mama Hill's tree at Rosehill. Bill Ector's tree is up the hill and Joe Dan's is nearby.

This ain't no disco.

just did it 2 weeks ago, the
reed grave is down by the river walk, you must also see little marthas and put a penny on her statue,you MUST go to the big house and do the audio tour and they have a map of all the sites and are great people will help you out a lot. the rock and roll hall of fame was kind of a disapointment for me but it is worth the time

From Sky & Oaks restin place,head down the hill towards the river.Theres a road that runs long side of it.Start walkin to the left and lookin on your left.You'll see Liz's stone along there.Keep on walkin long the tracks after that & up where the tracks start to curve,look up to your left again.You'll see some stairs goin up to it(The Bond Grave),& theres the ol vampire tree as well i do believe.

Like TanDan said, this ain't no disco. Be reverent.

Do no touch the bars of the barricade around Berry and Duane. It may have axel grease on it that does not come out in the wash (like most things, LOL).

Elizabeth Reeds' grave, as I recall is flat to the ground so it can be hard to miss.

Not sure if I will make the visit this time. I have not seen "the fence" and I don't know if I want to. I just want to remember the peaceful resting place surrounded by the beautiful plantings that Candace and Buford labored over. It was so beautiful then. I will, however, keep an open mind.

Thank you very much everyone for your advice and assistance. I had pointed a lot of important sites to go but I have confirmed any more.
By the way, I reiterate my question, anyone know exactly what time the cemetery is closed?
Thanks again.

Hours - 8:30 am - Sunset

My advice on this Macon trip... Leave the day entirely open... Last I was there I had to head back up to Atlanta for a wedding and ran out of time... Plan at least 2-3 hours for the Big House alone... The place is absolutely AMAZING...

The sign at Rose Hill says they close at 5PM. however, I advise you to do Rose Hill in the mroning before it gets too hot. The walking uphill and downhill gets rough at the end of the day.

I suggest you do Rose Hill first and then tour the rest of Macon....

The BIG HOUSE is ABBsolutely incredible and the people that work there are brothers and sisters. And..The Big House is only open Thursday throguh Sunday....

Thank you very much again. I don't think too hot is a problem for me but I appreciate the recommendation. Ja, ja, ja. (laughs).
I also want to thank the days you have confirmed that opens The Big House, because I had misread and thought that they did it from Tuesday.
I think that is the best option. Thanks.

Big Dave and Bluedad have a tent? You boys are getting up in the world. How exciting! Does that mean it cuts back on the partying for you or is the cooler coming with you? LOL.

A group of us from Chicago went to Macon last April for the grand opening of the Big House and the see the ABB play in Macon.We fell in love with the town.My wife and I have been back 2 times since then.

Last year TanDan was our awesome tour guide for the weekend.He spent 2 days showing us all the historical places we wanted to see.In our 2 visits back since then we went back to explore the Rose Hill more and see lots of places all around town

We were just there 2 weeks ago on a Sunday and the H&H is closed on Sundays.So TanDan suggested we eat at the Mellow Mushroon located on the outskirts of Macon.It is another ABB theme place to eat that has been there since 1974.The food was great and we all had a terrific time there.

Try to spend as much time at the Big House as you can

Have Fun
Sabrina & Tucker

If I remember right, Elizabeth Reed's grave is found at the bottom of the hill on the right near the river. The easiest way to get there is to go straight once inside the cemetery and go as far as you can until you can go no more. Go to the bottom of the hill and then turn right. It will be on your right and it is easy to spot as there are only a few other graves near it. Duane and Berry's graves are quite close to this part of the cemetery as well. The Bond Tomb is found near a circle/turnaround and it is not too far from a rare stop sign on the road. Little Martha is kind of in between Elizabeth Reed's grave and the Bond Tomb. Hope this helps a little bit but it will be easy for you if you get one of the aforementioned maps. Have fun. I thought it was the best ABB experience I have had outside of some stellar shows

TanDan must be the unofficial good will ambassador for all things Allman in Macon. He was kind enough to give me and my wife the Grand Tour last June. He is trully a Brother.

So true. The best thing about Dan is that he has a great perspective on things.

Thank you for everything bros. It was an amazing day in Macon and I could visit all this mythical sities related to ABB, but I didn't found the Bond Tomb because I didn't know exactly where it was.
Anyway, it was a pleasure to meet people of The Big House. Lovely people.
Thank you again.
