Cemetery is huge! Staff is helpful in providing info on grave locations. Garfield memorial was closed for the season so unfortunately could not go in. But overall, cemetery is well kept and provided map is easy to follow.

Wonderful place if you are able to walk great distances. If not there is amply road space to drive. The history is well worth a visit.

It's weird to review a cemetery, but it really is an interesting place. I have attend funerals here too. But even just taking a drive thru you can appreciate the cemetery. History buffs would definitely appreciate a visit.

This place is AWESOME. Soooo much history here. First off, President Garfields tomb is a must. Parts of his oval office are enshrined on the walls, and the architecture is fabulous. The chapel has a giant window made by Tiffany himself. You wouldn't know, but...More
