Largest Presidential resting place I had seen

Happened on to the site by being in the University/Little Italy neighborhood of Cleveland and got a tour of the Monument. Very intersting.

We were there with our little guy (9yrs) and had a great time -- the house is totally original from the times and we learned lots about pres garfield, early presidential campaigns, and what it was like in an old mansion.

Located in my favorite spot in Cleveland - Lake View Cemetery. Make sure to walk around the rotunda, go out on the balcony for the view, and down to the basement for the tomb. Very interesting history - a docent will fill you in.

Visited here on a Sunday afternoon, hardly any other people other than a volunteer in the gift shop. Very beautiful building inside and out.

Visiting the Lakeview Cemetary was one of the coolest things we did during our weekend in Cleveland. I know it sounds weird, but it was better than any park we may have seen, and the layout is unreal. As far as the Garfield Monument is concerned, we thought it was a church! And who knew the founder of Sherwin-Williams was... More

We enjoyed see in the monument. We also visited the cemetery on the same visit and had a great afternoon sightseeing.

This place in Lakeview Cemtery is one of the most interesting places to visit. It is the tomb of James A. Garfield, his wife, and his daughter and her husband.

Stopped here on a Friday in the summer. There was a tour guide inside giving some great information on both who Garfield was as a president and the monument itself. Beautiful inside but be sure to go all the way up (to the 3rd floor!) and see a beautiful view of downtown Cleveland and the lake beyond.

We stopped by on the way out of town. It was an interesting 40 minute stop. The building is beautiful, the inside is decorated stylistically like a European church, if you climb two flights of stairs. There is a very nice view. A former history teacher was the docent and he was great.

IF the roof top is open, you absolutely MUST take the stairs to see this wonderful view of Cleveland. There are really no words to properly describe this monument.
