12316 Euclid Ave., Cleveland, OH
Lake View Cemetery. Enter on the east side of Euclid Ave. just north of E. 123rd St. Drive through the gate, then halfway around the little traffic circle, then continue straight in. At the end of this straight stretch bear sharply left, then immediately bear right. You'll see a little lake on the right. The gravestone will be on the right, all by itself, next to the lake, just before the road splits into several directions.

Grave of Eliot Ness

The site is on Lake Road in the cemetery in section 7, but nestled between the small lake across Lake Road from Wade Chapel and Lake Road itself.

Grave of Eliot Ness

The marker is technically a cenotaph rather than an actual grave. Though he died in 1957, Ness' ashes remained with his family for four decades. In 1997, the ashes were ceremoniously scattered over a pond at Lake View Cemetery, and the cenotaph stands nearby.

Grave of Eliot Ness

I love this time period in history, so it was neat to see the grave site of Eliot Ness, who was famous as the lawman leader of the Prohibition-era Untouchables. There are quite a few other notable/famous people, along with a former President, buried in this beautiful cemetery.
