This is an interesting sight but kind of out of the way. If you are into history this would be a great place to visit and everyone is really knowledgable there.

Who would have thought that Cleveland has a former President in its beautiful cemetery? This monument in an incredible opportunity to go see part of history. After all, there have only been 44 presidents (well, technically 43, but that's a different story). Aside from being an interesting place for historical junkies to check out, this monument has a gift shop... More

This is a very well done memorial to President Garfield. The building in itself is magnificent. While you are here, be sure to tour the grounds of the Lake View Cemetery in which it is located. A history lesson at every turn.

The spires around the building are breathtaking along with the images carved above the front door entrance. We were told the the caskets of he and his wife are displayed in the... More

I was at the Monument for a concert on the lawn. Nice place to sit and relax. The inside of the monument is beautiful. Lots of steps tho. Well worth the hike up.

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

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.
