Lake View Cemetery, Cleveland

4.8
Known locally as "Cleveland's Outdoor Museum," Lake View Cemetery houses a memorial dedicated to president James Garfield and an ornate Neoclassical chapel, both listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A quiet place for a picnic or a stroll, the garden is located in the "Heights" area of Cleveland, notable for offering unobstructed views of Lake Erie. Founded in 1869 and modeled after renowned English and French graveyards of the Victorian era, the cemetery offers a variety of walking, bus, and self-guided tours of its grounds and two notable structures. As you walk through the cemetery, look for the Rockefeller family obelisk, made of the largest piece of granite ever cut for memorialization purposes.

  • A truly magnificent outdoor space. Such a pleasure to walk through.
  • One of my favorite places to walk in Cleveland. The entire cemetery is very well kept and gorgeous in the summer when all the flowers are blooming and the trees are green. Also very unique monuments and statues. I discover something new every time I go.
