The city is home to Lawnfield, the home of James A. Garfield, the 20th President of the United States. The house is designated a National Historic Site.
One of the gems of the Mentor area is Mentor Headlands State Park. With a beach that is about a mile long, grassy dunes, and a break wall and lighthouse at the eastern end, it’s a great place to take a relaxing walk, hear the Lake Erie waves. and to bird watch. During hot summer weekends it can become quite busy, and I find that a weekday visit is much more enjoyable. It’s one of my favorite local places to photograph, so I thought I’d share some of those pictures with you. Also, check out my YouTube video of a windy, fall day at Headlands.
