Front Elevation, 2014

Built of locally quarried Berea sandstone, the imposing Garfield Memorial towers over a grassy knoll overlooking Lake Erie. It is the nation's third tallest presidential memorial. Only the Washington Monument and the George Washington Masonic National Memorial (in Alexandria, Virginia) are taller. Another taller structure, the Hoover Tower at Stanford University, is technically not a memorial, for it was dedicated 25 years before President Herbert Hoover's death.
