Everyone knows about the mammoth Garfield monument in Lakeview Cemetery (the top of which, among other things, boasts one of the city's most picturesque views of downtown), but that's not the only gravestone of note in Northeast Ohio. In addition to politicians and industry titans, Cleveland's subterranean chambers host a slew of innovators and quirky historical celebs.

Lakeview Cemetery is of course the magnet for the region's biggest deaths (and gaudiest gravestones) of yesteryear, but take a tour through this slideshow to get a glimpse of some famous graves at Lakeview and elsewhere.
