James A Garfield National Historic Site Reviews and Information
Description
James A. Garfield acquired this home in 1876 to accommodate his large family. Named Lawnfield by reporters it was the site of the first successful front porch campaign which saw Garfield elected as 20th President of the United States in 1880. Following Garfield's assassination, the Memorial Library wing was added by Mrs. Garfield and her family - setting the precedent for presidential libraries.
