     Ed Haney and Debbie Weinkamer just completed their eighth season as docents at the James A. Garfield Memorial Cabin and Birth Site in Moreland Hills, OH.  The replica cabin, situated on the Village Hall grounds, was built in 1999 and is operated by the Moreland Hills Historical Society.  Visitors experience the setting in which our 20th U.S. President lived during his formative years (1831-1854). 

The cabin is open on Saturdays, June through September, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
