Securing a Legacy

Fundraising Goal: $5,000,000

The James A. Garfield Memorial is representative of the Gilded Age. Its elaborate design reflects the grandness of President Garfield’s service to the country and serves as a physical testament to American art.


In the Memorial’s lower level are the bronze casket of President Garfield draped with an American flag and beside him, the casket of his wife Lucretia Garfield. Nearby are urns holding ashes of the Presidents’ daughter Mary Garfield Brown and her husband, Joseph Stanley Brown, who also served as the President’s secretary.

The following projects have already been completed:

  • Exterior Berea sandstone cleaned
  • Grinding out of stone mortar joints
  • Power grouting and tuckpointing of exterior stone joints
  • Stone repairs and patchwork
