The James Garfield Monument and tomb was a surprise find. We have been to many of the Presidential Libraries and museums and were going to pass on this, even though we were passing through Cleveland. Decided to go and it was well worth it. There is a beautiful rotunda and tower, with mosaics and stained glass. A magnificent structure and... More

We made a brief stop here while touring the cemetary. The building is impressive inside and out. Worth a brief stop.

If you find yourself in the university circle/little Italy area of Cleveland, a drive thru the beautifully landscaped and historic lake view cemetery to the Garfield monument would make a fitting interlude any afternoon. The top portico offers a panoramic view of this post industrial age city.

Great little side trip if you are in Cleveland. Don't just drive by. It's worth it to go in and see the monument and take in the history that is there. Walk down the steps and view the Presidents casket and up to the balcony (if open) to see a great view of downtown Cleveland. And its Free!

Never thought I would learn so much about a president from visiting a house! Great historic visit! Loved the spider web wallpaper!

Didn't feel the need to get out of the car and go in for this one, but boy what a sight! Definitely worth the drive-by. Impressive structure inside of a beautiful area.

If you love history, architecture, or gilded-age design, this is a great place to visit. As a small attraction (compared to a museum or tour), it would make a terrific "appetizer" for a day of sightseeing, or a quick stop if you want to impress some out of town guests who don't have much time. According to the docent, there... More

Certainly a great stop if you're a fan of presidential memorabilia and history, but even if you're not, the building is interesting as are the grounds of the cemetery.
