We toured the house:
The wreath from Garfield’s funeral after his assassination in 1881:

Our next stop was Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural National Historic Site in Buffalo, the house where then-VP Theodore Roosevelt was inaugurated in 1901 after the assassination of President McKinley:

We overnighted at a nearby truck stop. See the alternating yellow line on the trip map for today’s drive.
