I love traveling to different cemeteries. This one had a lot more to offer than the usual ones I visit. There is something so peaceful about being around those who have passed on. The James Garfield monument was a definite highlight. The other thing that fascinated, but also creeped me out a bit was the mausoleum. It felt like death... More

After walking through the "feast festival" of little Italy, we walked up the hill at 6pm, and through the cemetery. The quiet hit me immediately, the grandeur of some memorials and the simplicity of others prompted my parter to ask me what impact on the world do I want to leave, not the conversation I was expecting in a cemetery....

You must tour the President Garfield's memorial and go to the top to take pictures. Also, go see the angel of death, Elliot Ness' plauqe, and the Wade Chapel. The chapel is completely decorated in Tifffany, and is very beautiful

It's just a cemetery, with a few famous graves including a memorial of James A. Garfield. It doesn't take much time at all, just 20-30 minutes to drive through. I wouldn't go out of my way to see it, but if you're in the area its nice to see.

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
