Voting Home / James A. Garfield National Historic Site
Nominated for: BEST Museum
The James A. Garfield National Historic Site, located in Mentor Ohio, includes the 7.82 acre estate of the United States' 20th president, James A. Garfield, who served from March of 1881 until his assassination in September of that year. The site includes the spacious main house, several out buildings, and a visitors' center with changing exhibits about Garfield's life, presidency, and death. The James A. Garfield National Historic Site is created out of the 7.82-acre estate purchased by Garfield in 1876 for his large family. The house itself was dubbed "Lawnfield" by the press because of its expansive front lawn. The name stuck. The house was also the site of the first "Front Porch" presidential campaign, a practice that became popular after Garfield's presidency.
