1840 to 1865Macon native Simri Rose, for whom Rose Hill Cemetery is named, established these grounds in 1840. Rose set aside ten acres of the property for slave owners to purchase and bury enslaved people and to bury city-owned enslaved people. On September 12, 1851, the city officially established this land as Oak Ridge Cemetery almost ten years before the beginning of the Civil War.
