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.

A peaceful place, where the famous and not so famous (including my mom) rest. Garfield's Tomb is interesting, but Wade Chapel is amazing, with Tiffany glass and mosaics.
