James A. Garfield National Historic Site

Flag as Inappropriate

<p>The home of President James A. Garfield and the site of his successful 1880 campaign became a national park in 1980.</p>
<p>Instead of traveling the country as presidential candidates do now, Garfield invited people to hear him speak from the front porch of his Mentor estate.</p> <p>Visitors can tour the grounds of Lawnfield -- the reporters' name for Garfield's home, not his own -- any day. On Saturdays and Sundays, they can also see the carriage house that has been reconverted into a visitors' center and take a tour of his home for $5. (Those 15 and younger are free.)</p> <p>The park hosts an annual nationalization ceremony on the Fourth of July and special events pertaining to Garfield throughout the year. For more information, visit its website.</p>
