The Garfield monument is amazing. Stained glass windows of figures representing the states. Each of them holding something relative to their state... Made it very interesting. Took a walk to look at the other monuments. Nice grounds for walking.

Quiet and dignified in the city and yet beautiful. Packed with history. Must visit the President Garfield Monument and listen to the excellent tour guides. Go to the top to peak at beautiful Lake Erie. The cemetery is very walkable and hilly. Can tour in your car. Excellent trees and shrubs. Birds. Great restaurants and Mitchell's Ice Cream nearby.

We visited Lake View Cemetery last week as part of our University Circle self-guided tour. This is a very big tract of land, graced by a lot of hills that provide great perspective views of the various areas around the grounds. There are also two large low-lying ponds towards the north end that would allow that part of the cemetery... More

Unusual but interesting to show guests to Cleveland the only above ground casket of a President. President Garfield Memorial is in the cemetery as is a chapel with Stained glass of Tiffany. If you are lucky, there will be a volunteer in the Wade chapel to describe the meaning of the mosaic walls. There are also mainy notable gravestones. After... More

Serene, huge, peaceful, full of points of interest.President Garfield and John D. Rockefeller are buried here, there's also an overview of the 2nd largest Dam in the US, you can park anywhere, it's quiet, beautiful........ oh and track down the Haserot Angel! A very disturbing statue you absolutely cannot miss.

sounds weird visiting a graveyard, right? this place looked like a movie set. I've never experienced anything like it. I'm not a huge history buff, but it really makes you appreciate your ancestry. I really enjoyed the pond area, even stopped on a bench for a quick bite and a moment of reflection.

Who goes to cemeteries on vacation?!? Neat place actually - some famous people buried here, including JD Rockefeller and Eliot Ness. President Garfield's tomb is neat, albeit a bit musty. Don't miss Wade chapel with the gorgeous Tiffany window and mosaic walls.

When you stroll through the cemetery, you are walking through Cleveland history. Do not miss the chapel with its' Tiffany windows! The best time is spring, with all the flowers.

Visit a cemetery? Yes! The gardens are glorious and sprawling. Elliot Ness, Harvey Pekar, Rockefeller, and United States President James A. Garfield are all buried here. We love walking the grounds especially in late April when the daffodils on Daffodil Hill are in bloom. You may visit President Garfield's memorial and tomb. Climb to the top of his memorial and...

Too bad all the residents here are asleep. I suppose we'll have to enjoy all this loveliness for them.
