Having another purpose for my visit, I wasn't aware of the Garfield Monument until it was right in front of us. Very impressive and memorable. I left with a desire to learn some more of this former President and his contributions that motivated such a Monument in his honor.

Stopped here the other day it is the building where garlfields tomb is. This place is beautiful and worth the climb on the spiral staircase to the balcony which has a fantastic view of the city

The signs throughout the cemetery made this memorial very easy to find. The park is well-maintained. The view from the top of the memorial is beautiful.

Incredibly impressive monument. But after a brief visit there's not much else. Very limited historical display or information. The volunteer docent had a little to offer that you could not find in a quick Google search. The walk up a circular staircase for a view of the city is exciting but beware if you are scared of heights or claustrophobic.... More

Took a ride and walk through the cemetery. So much history, from presidents to leaders who were part of the industrial revolution. Beautiful architecture all over and in particular, Wade Chapel. Must see!

Early on a Saturday morning, the cemetery opens at 9, we pulled up to the monument. We were met by Kevin a docent at the Mausoleum/Tower. Not only was he willing but most able to share his knowledge of the building and artistry of the monument, President Garfield and his wife Lucretia, the times in which they lived, but related...

If you are interested in Presidential history then this should be a stop after visiting the James A Garfield National Historic Site. It is one of the more elaborate Presidential monuments I have seen. The cemetery it is in is also interesting to see.

While visiting the home of President James Garfield in Mentor, Ohio, the Park Service ranger provided us with driving directions to Lakeview cemetery so that we could visit the Garfield monument. The monument is a wonderful tribute to Garfield and is the final resting place for him, his wife, daughter and son-in-law. Upon ascending the steps of the monument, you... More
