The Garfield monument is located inside the historic Lakeview Cemetery up Murray Hill from Little Italy. Surprising to most visitors is viewing President and Mrs.Garfield's coffins laying in state inside! Great archetecture and history on one of the USA's lesser-known presidents that was assassinated in 1881 after only 200 days in office.

Beautiful monument and landscaping. Very interesting place to visit, but were there early winter and the inside was closed for winter. We will visit on our return visit in the spring.

Beautiful monument dedicated to President James A. Garfield located in beautiful Lakeview Cemetery. Great view of downtown from the balcony. Make sure you check their schedule because they close the monument during the winter months. Make sure you check out Wade Chapel while at the cemetery.

This is a significant place because of the tribute to James Garfield and for the interesting art and architecture on display. The highlight, however, for me is going to the top and viewing Lake Erie and the City of Cleveland. It is gorgeous in any season. As part of a visit to Lakeview Cemetery, this is a can't miss in...

This is a bit of a drive from downtown but worth it. The Monument is very impressive with a beautiful golden dome and a statue of the president. The crypt below is rather grim, but the monument is quite stunning. And the entire cemetery is worth the visit.

Very beautiful monument. It was closed on our first stop, so we made a point to stop by the next day and I'm glad we did. Well worth it!

Came here on a Lolley the Trolley tour of Lakeview. The stained glass windows inside were beautiful. Well worth stopping in. The ceiling was also spectacular!

If you're visiting Cleveland and have the time the Lakeview Cemetery is worth a visit and while there you must see the Garfield memorial. It is a grand memorial. The main level is the memorial; upper level is the view, and the lower level is the mosque. We didn't enjoy the view because there were so many bugs/Mosquitos. The docent... More

This monument was quite impressive. The view from the top was very nice. It was nice that they had a "guide" there that gave you the history of the monument and the president (we are Canadian so we don't know a lot about all fo the presidents.)
