I'll be honest with you. I had never really given much thought to President Garfield. I mean he really isn't one of the most talked about presidents in history. Do a little research like I did though, and you'll find out he was a very interesting person. I found this place by visiting the Lake View Cemetery. I was amazed at this monument built for this president. The level of detail was amazing. You walk into the monument and to your right is a (in my case) a very pre-occupied guy reading a newspaper who barely looked up to say hi to me. You walk straight ahead and there is a statue of President Garfield surrounded by pillars. He is standing in front of a chair and looks very distinguished. Pay attention to the walls and ceiling that are very ornate and pretty. You can go upstairs to an overlook to get an overhead view of the statue. You can go even further up to go out on the balcony and get a nice view of the city and Lake Erie. One word of warning though: the stairs are very narrow so be careful going down them. After all that you can go all the way go the bottom level which is the crypt. Sounds creepy, but it isn't. Down there you can see some artifacts about president Garfield. You can also go and see the casket of the president and his wife. Next to the caskets are the urns containing the remains of their daughter and son in law. Its weird to look at those caskets and urns and realize they have been there for over a hundred years. Very cool place.
