Didn't get to spend much time here, but I'll definitely be back. I learned a lot about these interesting story of President Garfield. It's a small spot run by the National Park Service and there is lots to see and so much information.
I spent five hours here. Cost for a normal tour is $7.00 per non-child person. Garfield was a seriously awesome fellow.
Great setting, hosting frequent fun events, the James A. Garfield historic site is well worth the visit. Nice visitor's center, and the tour through President Garfield's home is very interesting. Check out the Civil War reenactment, every summer, and experience a Civil War encampment, complete with music, storytelling, and warfare demonstrations. See President Abe Lincoln, and General U.S. Grant, and support local Cub Scouts, selling refreshments!
Great place, great tour. Very knowledgeable guide. Fair price of $7. I feel like there could have been something more...
It was educational and enjoyable to learn about this underrated man and his historic house. The tour guide clearly enjoyed what she was doing and had plenty of trivia.
