My docent Kevin was amazing. Extremely informative. So many details within the monument. Then you can pay your respects to the caskets below. Bathrooms are also located in the downstairs. When I went the entire building was covered in scaffolding as they are doing repairs.

Although the outside is being repaired, the monument remains open. Located in Lake View Cemetery, the monument was built relatively soon after James Garfield's assassination. While he is not a household name today, Garfield played an important role in national politics from the Civil War...More

Garfield was our 2nd president assassinated and only 16 years after Lincoln so it was a big deal. The monument is very impressive and beautiful. You can go inside. Down in the basement is the casket of President Garfield (with Garfield inside). You are also...More

The docent at the monument is very prompt to close at 4:00. If you want time to walk through and see the statute and caskets than give yourself enough time. There are also some steep, winding stairs to a balcony from which you can see...More

We were there right before 4PM so we didn't have enough time to look around or get the free tour that is offered, but from what we were able to see this was truly magnificent.
