Lawnfield - Home of President James A. Garfield


Mentor is a small town in Ohio not too far from Cleveland. The main reason to come and visit is the James A. Garfield National Historic Site, which preserves the property associated with the 20th President of the United States.

Garfield acquired the home in 1876 to accommodate his large family. The home, named Lawnfield by reporters, was the site of the first successful front porch campaign in 1880. James A. Garfield was President from March 4, 1881 until his death on September 19, 1881. Four years after his assassination, the Memorial Library wing was added by Mrs. Garfield and her family - setting the precedence for presidential libraries. James A. Garfield NHS is operated by the National Park Service and the Western Reserve Historical Society
