MENTOR, Ohio (AP) - A National Parks site near Cleveland is reopening after being closed since last fall.

The News-Herald Reports (https://bit.ly/1ALlEIo ) that the Garfield Home at the James A. Garfield National Historic Site will reopen to public tours on May 12. The site was temporarily closed due to the installation of a new heating and cooling system.

Before the system could be installed, the National Parks Service had to pack up and store over 6,000 artifacts which have now been returned.

The home will open at 10 a.m. There is a new $7 entrance fee for visitors age 16 and older. Children 15 and under will be admitted for free.

Garfield was the nation’s 20th president, but his time in office was cut short by assassination in 1881.
