He was the President for a short time before his tragic death, which could have been avoided if he had received competent medical care. Well anyway, this site commemorates his presidency and the fact that he was born and lived in the area. Great for history buffs.

A beautiful presidential site about a great man
Jul 2020
What a lovely treasure in northeastern Ohio. Although the house is currently closed for tours due to COVID, the rangers offer a virtual house tour throughout the day in the visitor's center and small museum. This is a must-visit place to learn about a great man who, had he lived, would likely have been one of our best and most esteemed US presidents. The rangers are well-informed and friendly. There is a small gift shop to get all of your James Garfield gifts and books, etc. The museum is great, it's small enough to manage in an hour but full of great artifacts and information which sets them in their historical contexts. The grounds are beautifully maintained. I loved my visit to this special place.

Historical fun!

This property is a wealth of information about the Garfield campaign and family property. The grounds are clean and provide QR code’s for information through your cell phone for a self guided tour. The home is absolutely stunning.

Great National Site
Jul 2020
This was a great experience for our family. The teens learned about James Garfield and his life. The property is lovely and very well kept up. The video about President Garfield's life is excellent! If you are near the Cleveland area stop and enjoy this National Park.

Thought this was about Garfield the cat. Lol. Expensive trip to see some boring president - when I wanted to see the cool cartoon cat eat some lasagna

I had a few extra minutes so I decided to drive by the James A Garfield National Historic site. Nice for a short, close outing.

Senior Pass site

We went here to get our National Park Senior pass last year. A wonderful place to visit, and see how a President lived. Very well stocked with memorabilia.

Knowledgeable Ranger
Jul 2020
Unfortunately could not tour the house due to COVID19 but seen the film, and the one ranger showed us a virtual tour with explanation. She was outstanding very knowledgeable of Garfield, the house and history. We was permitted to walk the grounds all without paying a fee very enjoyable.
