Basic Information

Entrance Fees:

CURRENTLY THE GARFIELD HOME TOUR IS BEING OFFERED VIRTUALLY FROM OUR VISITOR CENTER. THERE IS NO FEE FOR THE VIRTUAL TOUR. DUE TO THE PANDEMIC WE ARE NOT TAKING PEOPLE THROUGH THE GARFIELD HOME AT THIS TIME. 
 

Visitors to the James A. Garfield National Historic Site can enjoy the site in a number of ways:

  • the Garfield Home will be reopening June 1, 2021. Tour reservations are required and only seven (7) are permitted for each tour. Please call (440) 255-8722 to make reservations.
  • the Visitor Center offers museum exhibits chronicling the life of James A. Garfield, from canal boy to President. An 18-minute video further highlights the accomplishments of the President throughout his lifetime. The Eastern National bookstore offers a range of print and souvenir materials to commemorate your visit.
  • walking the grounds allows you to explore the remaining parts of the Garfield's 160 acre farm. Though we don't have crops or livestock anymore, with pictures and a little imagination one might imagine the rows of wheat, orchards of apple and pear trees, and hear the bleating of lambs and clucking of chickens as you stroll the paths.
