A tribut to a man who spent far lass than a year in office. The building supported by the citizens is on top of a hill, inside a beautiful hall, great murals, excellent design and architecture. Impressive.

Very attractive building - a lot of history and a great docent there to enhance the memory. Would recommend it to everyone, as this country needs people to understand our history more.

When visiting the larger cemetery, we wandered upon this memorial to US President James Garfield, who I knew almost nothing about. I learned about his life, ideas, family, contributions (Union General, etc.) and his death. We were there on a Sunday in the summer and there was a concert on the lawn, which was fine and started at 4 pm.... More

Obviously the Garfield memorial is a must-see and to actually be able see the coffins where the President and his wife are interred is something unique. There are plenty of great graves to visit like Rockefeller and you must stop by the little church. The Tiffany glass and architecture is beautiful.

Finally visited the interior of this remarkable monument during a hike in the cemetery. The stained glass windows within are stunning. It was bizarre to see a casket lying in state after all of these years. There were odd artifacts on display in the lobby and friendly volunteer staff are available to add historical context. Continue through the cemetery to... More

Its located in the Lakeview cemetery so it is not easily found, but its worth a visit if you like history. The monument is a beautiful piece of architecture.

Stopped by on our way out of town and were pleasantly surprised, beautiful site with some great and interesting information provided by an outstanding volunteer. Made me do some research on Garfield when we got home.

The mosaics in the building are stellar and a wonderful tribute to the President. Make sure you go to the upper terrace for the great view of the lake and the city. Don't miss the Wade Chapel while you are there. This beautiful attraction is a must for history buffs.

Having seen the balcony views which are great, we stopped in one day and met a volunteer, who knew so much about Garfields history, shooting, ultimate death...he brought us up the stairs which wind around and after an arduous climb we made it to the top!
