From the monuments to Nathan Bedford Forrest and the Women of the Confederacy at the bottom of the hill to the top and the monument to the Confederate Soldier this Cemetery is full of history. The only First Lady of the United States buried in Georgia is here, Ellen Axel Wilson wife of Woodrow Wilson. The tomb of the known... More

This is a beautiful old cemetery filled with graves ranging from the Civil War to present day. I would advise you to only go during broad daylight however, as it is located in a less-than-ideal part of town and there have been vagrants and other characters who harass visitors as it gets closer to dusk.

I lived most of my life in Rome and this is the first time I have visited Myrtle Hill Cemetery. I saw the memorial bricks of veterans, living and passed. I was amazed to see the names of so many with which I went to school at Armuchee. So much history in this lovely place and such a breathtaking view... More

At the end of Broad street is the historic Myrtle Hill Cemetery, it's entirely worth your time to spend a few minutes touring the graves and unique terrain. We opted not to walk the stairs on a cool rainy day and instead drove up about half way. It's not difficult if you go slow. Rome has a rich history, many... More

Download the app and be prepared to climb. Search for Rome GA in the App Store and listen to the great commentary as you climb the hills. I suggest you park in the lot and not on Myrtle Street. Search for angels and soldiers.

Myrtle Hill Cemetery actually is a nice place to go for a day stroll. It is well maintained and you can get a pretty good view of the city and rivers from a few spots along your walk. It offers plenty of photo ops. Seems kinda creepy but, it is interesting to look at the older tomb stones. Lots of... More

Good way to spend a lazy afternoon, but only if you like looking for the historical grave markers. Be sure to look for the First Lady's grave.

Richness abounds. I was staying with friends about 1/2 mile away and would walk quickly and run up and down the many steps as a work out. Watching the early morning sun, I would have the entire hill to myself. The cemetery is magical, with some areas pristine, other areas crumbling and vine covered. Lots of discussion about the honor... More
