There are a few notable stops, such as the Wade Chapel to see the Tiffany window and glass mosaics, monument to President Garfield (impressive architecture and design inside and out), Rockefeller family monument, and more. Its very scenic with rolling gentle hills, trees, plants and flowers. Check out their website for more info. Some of the sites close earlier than... More

This is just an amazing place full of history, amazing statues and a glimpse into America's cultural heritage. John D Rockefeller is buried here as is Elliott Ness and President Garfield. When we climbed up the Garfield Memorial I looked on the sides of the building and there were these amazing gargoyles attached. I took my kids there when they... More

You wouldn't think a cemetery would be so entertaining and interesting, but it was just that!! Loved the Cleveland History - buy a map at the office that helps you find the gravesites and gives you some information on many people buried there. The best thing: THE VIEW OF CLEVELAND FROM THE TOP OF JAMES A GARFIELD'S MEMORIAL BUILDING!! It... More

From Elliott Ness to President Garfield and lots more famous historical people are buried there. There is a ton of history at Lake View. Call ahead and get a guided tour on a golf cart - for up to 3 people. Great view of the city and Lake Erie on clear days from the top of the Garfield monument. Little... More

Not only will you be in awe of the famous people buried here, John D Rockefeller, secretary Hayes for Pres. Lincoln, Glidden as in paint, the tombstones and statues are beyond beautiful. Weeping angels, the Arch Angel Michael, I could go on and on. The Wade Chapel has beautiful Tiffany stained glass from TIFFANY himself. A memorial to Mr Wade,... More

See the Rockefeller site - and the memorial to President Garfield where we found a very well informed guide, and the view from the top worth climbing 60 steps. Obviously a very rich town with numerous rich families at one time not long ago considering the opulent monuments in this burial ground.

I am still amazed by President James Garfield's monument. The other graves were amazingly ornate as well with a Who's Who in America buried there. Don't miss out on this site if you are in the Cleveland area!

Last year I went to Al Capone's grave in Chicago and since then I was looking forward to close the circle visiting Elliot Ness final resting place. All the Cemetary is awesome, well designed and full of history and incredible people who choose to spend their resting time here! Finally, Garfield Monument is a master piece, check it out, awesome... More
