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.
