  • The last time I was here the Monument was closed for some unknown reason. This time I was able to view the inside plus climb the stairs to get a magnificent view of Cleveland from the top on a gorgeou...  more »
  • Don't let the gothic mauseleum keep you away. Garfield would have been a great president; to learn why, visit all the rooms and climb to the very top to get a beautiful view of Cleveland's lake front.  more »
  • Beautiful building! The caskets are in the lower level. There is a statue as you walk into the main area that is well lit. You can go up the stairs to a balcony that overlooks the city center and you ...  more »

  • A must see. Best time to go is on the Saturday of (or the Saturday before) President Garfield's birthday November 19 during the wreath laying ceremony. It's also the last day to visit for the season.
  • You have to check it out! Beautiful stained glass, statues and gold. See president garfield down in the crypt and then climb to the balcony to get a great view of downtown Cleveland. It's only open in the spring and summer and has very restricted hours, so check the website to see when they're open before you go.
  • The Garfield Monument is amazing, but the Lake View Cemetery is a beautiful place to walk around and look at all the monuments. A lot of famous families of Cleveland history are buried here.
  • The monument is volunteer run, and is closed during the winter. If you are in the area, this location is an amazing free and educational historical tour. Make a point to walk up onto the observation deck, which gives you the best view of Cleveland.
  • Beautiful monument to James A. Garfield. Multiple levels: top level can be walked upon to see downtown; mid levels can see up and down through the center of the monument; the crypt is where Garfield rests. A real gem in Lakeview Cemetery!
