James A. Garfield Memorial Restoration

Lake View Cemetery

Cleveland , Ohio

The James A. Garfield Memorial is a historical highlight in Lake View Cemetery, dating back to 1885. Over 100 years later, time had taken its toll on this Cleveland Memorial. The foundation of the 180 ft structure needed to be repaired and supported. This restoration involved multiple phases as part of the restoration plan starting with the restoration of the memorial’s deteriorating foundation and first level. The restoration involved:

  • Demolition of the existing concrete slab, and previously installed steel shoring

  • Stabilization of the Structure prior to demo operations

  • Installation of new concrete foundations, columns, and beams

  • Tuck-pointing of the existing crypt walls

  • Relocation of the existing boiler

  • Installation of new underground plumbing, connection to the existing plaza drains
