A lot of famous people buried here

Check ahead and see if a walking tour is available. Yes, it is a little longer than desired and a lot of steps. but very well worth the time.

One does not think of a cemetery as a place to picnic, get exercise, or take in the sites, that is until you visit Lake View Cemetery. It is bucolic and breathtaking. While there are many activities within the cemetery that seem unconventional the more one ponders the idea it is completely natural. Garfield's monument, Rockefeller's burial site, history abounds.... More

For Cleveland history buffs and nature lovers, both. Come on a beautiful day and enjoy exploring this amazing cemetery. Make sure to visit Wade Chapel - try to stop in when a tour guide is speaking. You will learn so much about the incredible Tiffany design. And that window!! Make sure to visit the Garfield Memorial. (Climb to the top... More

Who visits a cemetery? We all do, if you know anything about Cleveland. You can take self guided tours or escorted. This is my all time favorite place to visit in Cleveland. You will not believe your eyes. Tiffany windows, Garfields tomb, daffodil hill, Rockafellers monument. The list can go on and on. Bottom line, do not miss this!

But that's exactly what we did there. And it was nice... so check out the programs during the summer, at least for this one time experience "i went to a concert in the cemetery and it wasn't my funeral" kind of thing. If you are fond of American history, there are some interesting tombs there, including, of course Garfield's. View... More

Experience Tiffany design in a Cemetery? Yes! It doesn't sound like a predictable venue in which to see outstanding architectural design by Louis Comfort Tiffany, but at this cemetery there's a gem of a mausoleum in which to behold his magnificent stained glass, mosaic walls, and carved alabaster. Additionally, at the Rockefeller plot you'll see a tall obelisk made out... More

Just completed a tour of Lakeview and 1st must say that everyone we met from the front office to the docents and other volunteers were incredibly friendly! We thought President Garfield's monument incredibly interesting, huge if a little 'run down'! The cemetery actually has a foundation to raise funds for the upkeep of the more famous monuments and the wade... More

If you really want to see Cleveland visit Lake View Cemetery. The view from the top of the Garfield Monument is the finest in the city and the Wade Chapel Tiffany window (and wall mosaics) are some of the finest in the world. Great place for history lovers.

We've been to Lake View Cemetery many times. It's fun to walk around exploring - you never know what famous person's grave you might stumble upon. Eliot Ness is one of our favorites. Be sure to visit the most famous resident at the James A Garfield Monument - our 20th president is buried here along with his family. It's a... More
