This place is more like a park than a cemetery. The grounds are beautiful and there are benches and picnic table scattered throughout the place. We saw many joggers and people walking dogs seemingly unaware they were in a cemetery. There are so many headstones...More

Took a friend to the cemetery to pick up the Christmas wreaths from the office. The people take such good care of her. She is 95 years old and they make sure all her needs are met.

We visited on a sunny but chilly winter day, and enjoyed this tranquil resting place mostly to ourselves. Although accessing the Garfield memorial was closed for the season, it was still interesting to contemplate the short and tragic tenure of our 20th president at his...More

Why visit a cemetery? It is both a beautiful and peaceful place to walk but has some of the most famous people entombed there - John D. Rockefeller, Eliot Ness, James Garfield, etc. The cemetery offers educational tours. We had a road rally through the...More

Went to see the Garfield memorial which wasn't open - but still beautiful from outside - only open from April to November. However the entire cemetery is quite large and full of beautiful monuments. Definitely worth driving or walking around.
