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.

Lakeview Cemetery is filled with memorials to Cleveland's most affluential family members as well as locals and from nearby communities. The layout is very outstanding and is a well manicured landscape. I have only visited during family funerals and really found it to be very...More

This is an incredible cemetery. I couldn’t get over how beautiful this place is. Definitely going to come back since I didn’t get to take it all in. I could spend a whole day here. I came to find the Haserot Angel with no map,...More

As crazy as it sounds, a visit to the Lakeview Cemetary is actually quite cool and historic. Cleveland has a rich history of dignitaries and famous, wealthy individuals. The grounds are immaculately kept & it’s truly worth a tour to see the history & glamour...More

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
