I spent several hours wandering around Gretchen's neighborhood. It's full of really well kept and very pretty older homes.
After that, I decided to go drive around downtown until I saw something interesting. I passed Severance Hall, where we're going tonight, and found a terrific cemetery.
Lakeview Cemetery is where President Garfield is buried and his monument/tomb/building is beautiful. I parked near it and was just in time to wander though while several groups of students were there on a school trip. My timing could definitely have been better. After that I hiked through admiring all of the neat gravestones, and there were lots of those. I found the Collinswood School Memorial (more about that later), Wade Chapel, a beautiful little chapel donated by the Wade Family. Mr. Wade found a huge, gorgeous Tiffany window while on a European trip and shipped it back. Then he hired Tiffany to build a Chapel around it. It's one of 4 Tiffany buildings in the country. Yes, yes, pics to come when I can.
There are many more beautiful and grotesque monuments there, and graves of many famous people in American history. John D. Rockefeller, Eliot Ness, Henry Chisholm are just a few.
I highly recommend a walking tour if you're ever in the Cleveland area. But start at the bottom and work up. I parked at the top near the Garfield Monument and hiked in circles down and around the hill. Precisely the opposite of the direction I should have done it.
