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

Original Tiffany stained glass window. Walking tours but some areas are hilly. Booklet outlines some of the notable Clevelanders who participated in industry and the underground railroad. Beautiful botanical gardens throughout.

We had a blast here. We first were given the history of the cemetery by Russ in the main office who gave us a map and told us how to navigate the grounds. His enthusiasm made for a very informative conversation. Wade Chapel had Kathy who like Russ gave us so much information you could tell she loved her work... More

A great place even when Halloween is not around. My dream would be to have George Szell to come back to conduct Schnittke's work for Dead Souls here on the Day of the Dead since I believe this cemetery is located right near Bolivar St.
