This beautiful 68-acre cemetery alongside the Ocmulgee River was landscaped in 1840, making it one of the oldest surviving public cemeteries in the country. Terraced hills and cypress trees give it a grandeur not unlike that of the Forum in Rome. Among those buried here are Confederate generals, Georgia politicians and entrepreneurs, beloved pets, and two members of the Allman Brothers Band, who died within a year of each other in motorcycle accidents at the same Napier Street intersection.
