I definitely wasn't expecting to see such an elaborate monument to President Garfield. The mosaics were really beautiful and the attendant explained the symbolism behind them. There is apparently a really beautiful view of downtown too, but it was foggy the morning we visited. It...More

On a clear day you can see the lake and 20 miles in each direction. The surrounding cemetery is beautiful and peaceful to walk through. Many famous people buried there. Good to visit between stopping in Little Italy and Coventry Road
