  • 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.

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!
