You must go inside the James A Garfield memorial it is amazing the detail and the size. Plan on few hour to tour everything. Take the step to the observation deck you can see very far on clear day. Have fun.

John D. Rockefeller, Marcus Hanna and President James Garfield are laid to rest here. Notice the monuments erected by the rich and others before taxes. Its a nice drive thru history. Grounds a taken care of well, as they should be.

We were in Cleveland and heard some notable Americans were buried here, so we decided to stop by. If you come to this cemetery, you absolutely can't miss James Garfield's memorial. Be sure to go up to the balcony at the top, there's an amazing view of Cleveland (hence the name "Lake View").

President Garfield's Memorial is the centerpiece of this cemetery, however, there are many other interresting historical sites within it's walls. Charles Brush, the electical inventor, is buried here, plus many other signicant persons from Cleveland's history.

My guy and I went here with the Cleveland Ghost Tour in October of 2014. Most people in the group were given Diving-Rods to detect Ghost/Haunted activity.My guy did detect some Haunted activity. It was difficult to tell because Diving-Rods point towards water and it was pouring down rain.

Request a map at the office. Despite the map, we got lost several times. It's a big hilly cemetery; wear comfortable shoes. Aside for Garfield's monument and the White Temple, we didn't see anything worth mentioning; some areas of the cemetery are not easy to navigate by foot (hilly; muddy; potholed; no banisters).

A beautiful place to pay your respects. We were sight-seeing in Cleveland. Made a trip to see the Garfield monument since we are history buffs. Make sure that you see the Wade chapel before exiting. It is a thing of beauty to behold.

If you are a history buff, you must stop here. It is amazing! Plan on at least 2 hours. The chapel with the Tiffany windows and the wonderful mosaics is an artistic marvel. Wandering around through the gravestones you will see the names of many of the rich and famous who lived in Cleveland. If the weather is warm, pack... More

I recommend this to all of my friends and family who visit and I have driven through Lake View Cemetery 4 times since I moved here. If you stop at the gate house between the hours of 10am and 2pm you can purchase a CD for $5 and they will give you a map so that you can drive and... More

If you're a cemetery buff or even a history buff, you should check this place out. It's best to go from April - September when the Garfield monument & the chapel are open. They have cute little elderly volunteers that will tell you interesting facts & history surrounding these buildings. There is a lot of beautiful things to see &... More
