What's a Porch For?
A front porch can serve many purposes. For some, a place to enjoy the breeze on a warm summer night. For others, a perch from which to keep eyes on what's happening in their neighborhood. In 1880, James Garfield used his front porch as a platform to greet thousands of well-wishers during his presidential campaign. Today, the porch serves as a gateway to the story of the Garfield family.

The James A. Garfield National Historic Site was given the name Lawnfield by reporters in 1880. Up until then, the Garfield family called it "The Mentor Farm".
