Lake View Cemetery Foundation


Lake View Cemetery Foundation


The Organization

Lake View Cemetery was founded in 1869 and sits on 285 acres of land.  The cemetery is so named because it is partially located in the “heights” area of Great Cleveland, with a view of Lake Erie to the north.  It was modeled after the great garden cemeteries of Victorian England and France.  The James A. Garfield Memorial is the most prominent point of interest at Lake View Cemetery.  The ornate interior features a large marble statue, stained glass and bas relief, and various historical relics from Garfield’s life and presidency.  The memorial also serves as a scenic observation deck and picnic area.  President and Mrs. Garfield are entombed in the lower level crypt, their coffins placed side by side and visible to cemetery visitors.  Another prominent structure in the cemetery is the Wade Chapel.  A small but magnificent chapel with a tiffany window and elegant Biblically inspired mosaics on the walls, the edifice is still used for small weddings and located north and down the hill from the Garfield Memorial.

The mission of the Foundation is to maintain, preserve and enhance for the benefit of the public, the historically and architecturally significant buildings and monuments, botanical gardens and landscapes of Lake View Cemetery.
