AUTUMN AFTERNOON AT LAKE VIEW CEMETERY
Meet at Garfield Memorial
Sunday September 24 at 2 pm
With 285 breathtaking acres, Lake View Cemetery has been named Cleveland’s #1 tourist destination and is the perfect place to spend a fall afternoon.
The tour will visit memorials for some of the nation’s most famous and influential people—from Garfield to Rockefeller to many of the area’s legendary civic leaders. Two notable stops:
• The James A. Garfield Monument is the final resting place of the 20th President of the United States and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The building combines Romanesque, Gothic and Byzantine styles of architecture.
• Wade Memorial Chapel, built in memory of Jeptha Wade, founder of The Western Union Telegraph Company and the first president of Lake View Cemetery, is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is one of the few remaining interiors in the world that was totally designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany and his studios.
At 2 pm, our docent will begin a 11/2- 2-hour walking tour of the cemetery and its attractions. Please come a few minutes early so we can sign you in.
The cost is $10.
