Its haunted!

What a cool place to visit. And its in a beautiful cemetery to boot. Need at least an hour to enjoy your visit. But worth every minute.

Be sure to go downstairs where the president and his wife are entombed. And upstairs to see the great view of the city!

Not to be missed. You can see this when you visit the Lakeside Cemetery. What a hidden treasure. I think they may be shutting this down, but you can still view the outside. Please stop by the entrance to get a map or view on line. There are so many places to see within the cemetery you do not want... More

Terrific for history buffs. Great views of the city from the monument (especially if you climb to the top).

Being a big President Garfield fan, I thoroughly enjoyed this monument. Definitely worth the stop even if you don't know much about the president. Lake View Cemetery is worth the drive, not only for the monument and the Wade Chapel. It's peaceful and beautiful!

Took the Healthline bus to Lake View Cemetery and back. Got a one day pass for $5. A short uphill walk to the monument is a nice stroll through the cemetery. Inside the monument is a statue of Garfield and the coffins of he and his wife. A nice climb up the stairs takes you to a very nice observation... More

I've lived in the Cleveland area for years, but this was the first time we ever went. Very cool structure, hiding in the middle of a beautiful cemetery. The cemetery itself is based on European styles, and is gorgeous. Well worth a visit, and hour or two.

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....
