The James Garfield Monument is a beautiful structure recounting details of Garfield's life. The stained glass windows are magnificent and the story told within the building teaches lessons about this man's life. A great place to spend a few moments learning about our history.

Garfield's statue is located inside a beautiful building with stained glass window. The monument is located in the Lakeview cemetery. There is a docent there to provide information about the president.

Everyone knows Garfield but nothing about him. This sort of fills in the gap. Turns out he was a pretty good president who got more done in his first 200 days than some we know. The monument itself is a late Victorian pile and not...More
