James A. Garfield Monument

Since today was in the low 60's, which is rather amazing for a January day in Ohio, we decided to take a small road trip to the Lake View Cemetery in Cleveland.

One of the most noteworthy points of interest at this site is the James A. Garfield Monument. It was built in 1890 and is just beautiful.

Also, we were rather stunned to see the final resting place of John D. Rockefeller. Even though he passed away over 75 years ago, Mr. Rockefeller is still making money! Visitors place coins on his grave in hopes that great fortune will come their way.
