Cardboard Tour of James A. Garfield National Historic Site

National Park Service

Explore the home of James A. Garfield. Garfield was elected as the United States' 20th President in 1881, after nine terms in the U.S. House of Representatives. His Presidency was impactful, but cut short after 200 days when he was assassinated. As the last of the log cabin Presidents, James A. Garfield attacked political corruption and won back for the Presidency a measure of prestige it had lost during the Reconstruction period.  Garfield lived here from 1876 until early 1881.  His widow, Lucretia, owned this home and property until her death in 1918.  The site visitors see today is more reflective of her many years here after the President's death than the few years he lived here before becoming the nation's 20th President.Start
