Mentor in Lake County, Ohio — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
In 1893, twelve years after James A. Garfield's assassination, Lucretia Garfield directed the construction of the Queen Anne-style carriage house off to the left. About 1900, the structure's interior was remodeled and an extension added on the back.
Inside were horse stalls, a tack room, and carriage storage. The second floor contained a hayloft as well as a two-room apartment for a coachman. Today, the carriage house contains the site's visitor center and exhibits about the life of James A. Garfield.
