The James A. Garfield Monument was very impressive! The interior stained glass panels and mosaics are stunning. Walk the spiral staircases to the top for impressive interior and exterior views. You won't be disappointed. The docent was very helpful.

Location: Near Cleveland's Little Italy in Lakeview Cemetary. Easily to locate with good signage. An uexpected find in memory of President Garfield. Great statue in a fitting-sized rotunda with mosaics. Downstairs a crypt. Small group lectures seemed available.

I am glad we stopped and paid our respects to one of our past Presidents. Not much of an area to stop and park. There are a number of steps to visit the crypt.

Most Important Note: Even though the cemetery is open until 5:30 pm, the monument is only open until 4 pm. We just barely made it in, but the staff member, clearly closing up, let us come in and take our time to look around. It...More
