While visiting family my Son In-Law said that we needed to check out this cemetery. There are lots of grave of historical people. The day we were they they had closed access to most of the mausoleums ahd been closed for the winter. We will be back in the spring and will return.

Lakeview Cemetery is more like a park than the usual cemetery. It has the grave sites and mausoleums of some famous people and it also has Tiffany windows. It is on a slightly rolling landscape with lots of trees. In the summer it is a walk in a park.

When someone suggested I visit a cemetary I thought they were crazy. I WAS WRONG. Right next to Little Italy is a Cleveland gem. Between April and November there are volunteers and maps available - and Garfield's monument is open. A trip to the lower level of the monument is where you will find his final resting place. Then a... More

Don't let the name cemetery scare you from visiting this beautiful well-maintained park. It is one of the best places to visit while in Cleveland and offers you many attractions. It is a beautiful park with some graded hiking passages through many historical burial sites for the who's who of the Cleveland society of the 19th century. Of particular note... More

I visited Lake View cemetery on a warm Sunday afternoon and it was the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the surrounding neighborhoods. As others have mentioned, the Garfield monument is spectacular and the guide was both friendly and informative. Likewise the Wade chapel with its extraordinary "river of life" and "river of death" mosaics along each wall,... More

The Garfield Monument is a must do- it's interesting and eclectic architecture, a tribute to a former president and general, and when you climb to the top you are rewarded with gorgeous views of Cleveland and Lake Erie. Wade Chapel has lovely Tiffany glass and there occasionally are tours where you can learn about the symbolism on the walls. Outside... More

If you live around NE Ohio or are just in for a visit....this is a fun place to drive through. Sorry to use fun with a cemetery, but where else can you see Eliot Ness, Rockefeller and that baseball player who was hit by a line drive and killed? Really interesting and a good drive and walk through in nice... More

My fascination with cemeteries began on one of our many family trips to Charles City, Iowa. Something about being a teenager and seeing the final resting places of family that I did and didn't remember as a child captured my attention. This fascination has continued well into my adulthood and my husband will tell you that no vacation for me... More

Beautiful landscaping, great birding and a window on history makes Lakeview something very unique. Be sure to drive through and stop to walk millionaire's row, visit Wade chapel to see the Tiffany windows, and stop at the Garfield memorial for a great view of the lakefront and city. Great fall color and wonderful In the spring.

A friend of ours recommended we make a stop here and we did. We were fortunate enough to pick a day when few other visitors were around so we had the undivided attention of the gentlemen at the Garfield Memorial and the Wade Chapel. What a wonderful job they did of explaining all the details. We would have never noticed... More
