First, when I say I live in Cleveland, Ohio I get a lot of ohhh’s. However, I am proud to be a Clevelander and Lake View Cemetery solidified that for me. Lake View Cemetery has a copious amount of history. There have been so many famous and wealthy people that have been laid to rest at Lake View people that... More

Go to this cemetery just to visit this chapel. Literally jaw-dropping when you walk in. There is a tour guide on duty to tell you about the Tiffany-designed works that decorate the walls. The stained glass window is the ultimate Tiffany experience.

The Wade Chapel is a gorgeous gem with a VERY interesting story. The Garfield memorial is also quite interesting and offers a great view of Cleveland from its upper level. This place is really nice to visit in Spring, Summer and Fall and is full of interesting history. Convenient to Little Italy, University Circle, bohemian Coventry, and many fine restaurants,... More

Be sure to stop by the info chapel to get the map and dun miss the two main attractions in the cemetery. Simply amazing. And fun fact is that the dam in the cemetery was the place they shot Captain America.

We loved walking around this cemetery and looking at all the monuments. The grounds are tree covered which helped with shade on the hot humid day we visited. The monument at the entrance of the grounds was very moving, seeing the names of all the children that lost their lives in the school fire. We learned something that day we... More

We saw the Wade Chapel and the Garfiled monument. The Wade chapel is so beautiful and the Tiffany window and glass in the murals and floor are exquisite. The Garfield monument was cool, expecially the statue made from one piece of granite!

See John Rockerfella's grave, a President lying in state, a chapel whose walls and windows were designed by the Tiffany Studios. Majestic views, beautiful grounds and very peaceful!
