One of Kylo Ren’s most favorite places to visit is Rose Hill Cemetery. A cemetery may seem like an odd place to adventure with your cat, but there are a few reasons why it is a perfect adventure cat destination.
- Cemeteries are usually pretty quiet – minimal people, cars, sounds, etc. to spook your kitty.
- If you have an old, historic cemetery in your town, they can actually be quite beautiful and scenic. Plus, you may learn some interesting tidbits of history.
- There are so many paths and sidewalks to explore! This is precisely why Kylo loves them so much.
Kylo LOVES to follow paths. Put him on a path, and he will follow it until it ends (or until we have to turn back). Seeing as cemeteries are full of sidewalks and paths, you can understand why visiting one would be so exciting for him.
While there are many cemeteries nearby, Rose Hill is our favorite one. First opening in 1840, it is both the oldest and the largest cemetery in Macon. It was actually designed to be a a gathering place for the people of Macon, as well as for visitors of the city. The landscape is beautiful, with many hills and valleys. There are also tons of old monuments and headstones, which are interesting to look at.
Rose Hill is also the final resting place for three of the Allman Brothers Band members: Duane Allman, Gregg Allman, and Berry Oakley. For those who don’t know, the Allman Brothers Band was from Macon. They used to hang out at Rose Hill and write music. In fact, one of their most well-known songs, “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed,” was named after a headstone they saw in the cemetery.
You can also find the grave sites of governors, mayors, senators/congressman, and military officers and soldiers at Rose Hill. It is packed full of history!
