Lakeview Cemetary is a must visit in the Cleveland area. Beautiful and a lot of history. The monument is an impressive building & the view from up top answers why the cemetary is called Lake View We always enjoy a visit to a Presidential grave and this was not a disappointment

I love Lake View Cemetery and the Garfield Monument is one of the most famous there. You can go inside and upstairs for a great view. Also, the tomb can be viewed. Don't need to be part of a tour for this, but the tour is great.

This is a neat little place in Mentor, Ohio. It is the former home of President James A. Garfield. The home is beautiful inside with many original pieces of furniture and artifacts. There are guided tours. It would not recommend this for small children.

Look up and you will be amazed at the elegance and artistry of the ceiling. The monument was built in 1890 utilizing Ohio sandstone. Inside it showcases... More

We visited in December when you could not go inside. Just looking at the outside was interesting, but I would like to go back when it is open.

US Presidents are always so interesting to me. This was a very cool site to see. The statue when you walk in is beautiful. Turn around and check out the stained glasses of a few states there around his statue its pretty cool. The best part of this monument is when you walk down stairs and see his coffin with... More

This is a very interesting monument and tomb with beautiful architectural details. You can climb up winding stairs to get to a rooftop deck which lets you look out over the entire cemetery, or climb down to the actual tomb.

Beautiful views of downtown Cleveland and the Lakefront from the monument. Accidentally found ourselves here during the air show one year. Amazing.Yes, a real live accessible monument of a president right in our back yard.
