One of the most beautiful cemeteries in the nation sits atop Myrtle Hill at the confluence of the Etowah and Oostanaula Rivers. Offering an unimpeded view of downtown Rome, Georgia and the surrounding region, the cemetery boasts spectacular vistas and historic significance which combine to make it one of the most unique in the world. Throughout the six terraces of the hill are hundreds of Civil War soldiers, Veteran's Plaza, a First Lady of the United States, and thousands of stories from Rome's founding in 1834 to today. If you are looking for the historic, surreal, quintessential southern cemetery, Myrtle Hill holds a place for you.

This interactive mobile app will take you on a voice narrated, GPS enabled tour of the cemetery with historic photos and intriguing stories.

Welcome to Myrtle Hill Cemetery. Cemeteries are outdoor art galleries, history museums and botanical gardens. We hope you enjoy your visit to Rome’s most tangible link to the past.
This tour will take you approximately two hours and will require walking and climbing steps, please wear comfortable shoes and bring water! There are no public restrooms or facilities within the Cemetery.
It is recommended that guests park in the public parking lot located at the intersection of Branham Ave and S. Broad St. However there is street parking along Myrtle St as well.
Please be respectful to others as this is still an active cemetery.

Very Informative App!!

I was born and raised in Rome, GA and I have been on a mission to rediscover my hometown after moving away 14 years ago. My dad's side of the family are all buried here and I have been visiting this cemetery most of my youth. I am so glad that I found this app! I am learning so many interesting things that really help me to appreciate my hometown.

Love, love, love this app

This is a such a great way to explore one of the most beautiful places in Georgia. The app took me all over the cemetery and allowed me to explore in between stops. I had been to Myrtle Hill before, but with this app I felt as though I hadn't missed anything!

The sound quit working with latest update, but I’m sure it will be restored in the next update. Thanks for preserving history and for creating an app that makes learning fun.
