It's free, doesn't take long, and a great chunk of history. Well worth the visit. Before of after, stop by Little Italy. It's right there.

This was my second time coming to this monument. I took my girlfriend this time. The usher there was very informative and answered every question we had. The cemetery was well kept and clean. The art work is beautiful.

My husband loves Johnny Cash and his song about Garfield is one of his favorites. Thus, the visit to Garfield's memorial. The cemetery is one of the most beautiful I have seen and you can spend hours walking and looking at the grave stones. Go visit Eliot Ness and Rockefeller as well

The cemetery is a reflection of Cleveland's rich history. Unfortunately, the dead at the cemetery may have better housing than some of the people who live in some of the poorer parts of Cleveland.

The memorial is a must see.

We travel to many Presidnets homes & monuments. This was another great one to mark off our list. Still a few more in Ohio to see.

Very educational for every age. Road maps for the cemetery are available. History lesson for all. Quite a building for the era it was built in.
