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.

Nice memorial to President Garfield. I didn't expect the building to be so massive. You can go up to an outside balcony, which has a nice view of downtown Cleveland.

Worth a stop if you are into history. Make sure to pick up a map of the cemetery so you can see other sites in the area.
