Lake View Cemetery

The lavish monuments and mausoleums found in Lake View Cemetery make its 285-acres worth exploring. The north side of the property has beautiful views of Lake Erie and throughout the property you’ll find the final resting place of many notable historical characters such as Newton D. Baker, Helene Hathaway Britton, Alan Freed, Elliott Ness, and John D. Rockefeller.

Two sites in the garden cemetery are of particular interest: a stunning memorial to assassinated President James A. Garfield is located at the highest point in the park, and the mighty Wade Memorial Chapel honors one of the cemetery’s founders (Jeptha Wade).
