The mass and detail is amazing so beautiful memorial. 12 feet Mable statue of President Garfield. Make sure you go to the observation deck. You can see downtown Cleveland and lake Erie. Plan on some time to look at everything. An hour should be good.

Although some may feel that it is a bit eerie to see the coffins of a past president and his wife, when one climbs to the balcony where one can look towards the city and Lake Erie in the distance while Spring foliage is abounding, life with its beginnings and endings is very apparent...

The story of President Garfield is very sad, so visiting this monument is quite educational. At the same time, the monument is located within one of the most beautiful cemeteries you will find. Alongside Rockefeller and Getty monuments, the Garfield monument is the centerpiece of a gorgeous piece of geography, that overlooks Downtown Cleveland, and the beautiful Lake Erie shoreline....

I have lived in Ohio for 13+ years. Since I didn't grow up on Ohio, I like going to historic places so that my kids and I can learn about the history of our state. We went to Lake View cemetery (which has other interesting people buried there, too) to see Garfield's monument. It was absolutely beautiful--full of beautiful mosaics... More

Gorgeous mosaic tile work throughout. We walked up a few flights of stairs to get a close-up of the domed ceiling. Interesting view from the outdoor terrace a few flights up. We were only able to ascend a few flights of stairs; then we faced a locked gate barring further ascent. Before or after visiting Garfield's monument, you might wish... More

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.
