Take some time and take a tour - there are so many famous people buried in this beautifully landscaped cemetery. The history of the chapel alone is worth the tour price. Go see Tiffany Glass at its best.

We went to Garfields tomg, Rckefellas and Haserot Angel. Rockefellas isnt labelled on the map so we had to ask. Garfields was amazing and glad we went to the Haserot but amazed at the hype. Bring a dime and place on Rockefellas for prosperity.

Make sure to visit Wade’s chapel. Docent was very knowledgeable. Also saw JD Rockafeller’s grave, Eliot Ness, James Salisbury, the memorial to the 20th president (James Garfield) and numerous others.

Also, visit Wade Chapel. The entire inside was done by the Tiffany studio. Get a list of all of the important people buried here...they are in the Garfield Memorial.

As far as visiting cemeteries go, this one is well worth your visit. Though the name of the cemetery makes you feel it is stationed on top of a hillside or next to the lake, it really offers no exceptional (or any) lake view (at...More
