Great Cemetery

One of the most outstanding cemeteries in the Cleveland area that is so full of history. Also, one can see the Rockefeller burial plots and the Garfield Memorial

Great little cemetery to walk through. Can see John Rockefeller's grave (Keep your eyes peeled for a very large obelisk) as well as Presidents Garfield Tomb. His grave has beautiful Mosaik and statue inside, a simple tomb in the basement and a great lookout on the very top floor where you can see downtown Cleveland in the distance.

Beautifully landscaped with interesting, famous people and terrific monuments. Golden in summer because of the daffodils. Colorful beyond belief in the fall. Roads are paved in the winter. Rockefeller. Garfield. Wade Chapel with Tiffany Glass. Such a treasure.

This is by far my favorite attraction in all of Cleveland. Beautifully landscaped with many bulbs, flowering shrubs, and trees, this is much more than a cemetery. Visitors can drive or walk depending on their ability, but be warned there are some hills and Lake View is quite large. Not to be missed is Wade Chapel, a gem unto itself,... More

Hubb's Groove performed today. What a wonderful freebie for an enjoyable and relaxing late afternoon. You can bring picnic food. In addition, you must explore the grounds. Tombstones are beautiful. Purchase a Trail Guide for $5 - lots of interesting facts. Don't miss the Wade Chapel. Wonderful Tiffany window and 2 glass mosaic walls. My husband and I drove about... More

This is a beautiful place to walk around and be in peace. The gardens are well kept and some of the tombs are very ornate and have interesting features. It's worth a look for sure. It's a big place and makes you forget it's in the city.

Visit the Garfield Memorial and go upstairs to get an awesome view of Downtown Cleveland. It is very historical and informative.

The docent at the Garfield Memorial was very nice and knowledgeable. We were the only visitors there and he provided us with some interesting tidbits about the place and the president. It's an interesting place to look around. Besides, I had never been so close to a president, dead or alive!

The Garfield memorial and the Tiffany chapel are well worth the trip. But the cemetery in general is beautiful and fun to drive around. History, art, beautiful landscape, plus the Italian neighborhood's restaurants and shops nearby -- this is a great addition to your trip to Cleveland. Just make sure to arrive well before the monument and chapel close so... More

We are visitors of as many of the U.S. Presidential historical sites and libraries as possible. We went to Ohio to visit Garfield, McKinley and Harrison sites. Garfield's tomb is enormous and very impressive. You can start at the bottom with the crypt where his and his wife's coffins are kept as well as urns of his daughter and son-in-law... More
