This wasn't open when we visited - only accessible April to November - check specific dates and times. But the building is quite beautiful and it's definitely worth it to walk or drive around the entire cemetary - some truly beautiful monuments.

The James Garfield Monument is a beautiful structure recounting details of Garfield's life. The stained glass windows are magnificent and the story told within the building teaches lessons about this man's life. A great place to spend a few moments learning about our history.

This is a monument that is worth climbing to the top in order to get a nice view of Lake View and of Cleveland. It is not too far to the top.

Interesting but I was there over a year ago, it was damp and a little musty. Really enjoyed the history and the next time I will use vapo rub under my nose.

Garfield's statue is located inside a beautiful building with stained glass window. The monument is located in the Lakeview cemetery. There is a docent there to provide information about the president.

Yes, especially the Wade Chapel and other stones that are beautiful, the view is nice. If you go when the air show is running, you get a great view.
