Wow! The Garfield tomb is a stunning destination. The architecture. The view. The tomb. And there was a concert outside during our visit. The chapel was closed but we did get a glance at Rockefeller’s gravesite.

How exciting/interesting can a cemetery be? This one is really cool. President Garfield’s memorial is incredible—with views from the terrace all the way out to Lake Erie. Wade Chapel is also magnificent. Drive or walk around and see unique grave markers, mausoleums and beautiful grounds....More
