“A nice surprise; definitely worth a stop when you're downtown”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2013

I never get tired of visiting churches. Cleveland's Old Stone Church is particularly well maintained and has a certain charm to it that creates a calm, welcoming vibe. The wood inside looks like it gets polished weekly, and the stained glass windows are beautiful. I was unable to available myself of a tour (formal or otherwise), but I did spend lots of time taking photos and admiring the windows and altar area. I was the only one inside for the good half-hour-plus that I walked around, and I would recommend a visit to this church for anyone who is interested in places of worship and/or historical landmarks.

The entrance is located on Ontario Street (right side of the church as you face the front facade). If the door is not open, push the button and someone will remotely unlock the door. Just walk up the steps and the staff will greet you and show you the way to the inside of the church.

“Tiffany!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2013

I've lived in Cleveland forever, and who knew there were Tiffany windows in the Old Stone Church? Fabulous! We happened to be walking by and the door was open so we peeked in and a man gave us a personal tour of the sanctuary with lots of info.

“Historic”

A very historic part of Cleveland's Public Square. Very interesting past and the staff is more than willing to share its history.

“This is a beautiful church.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2012

This is a lovely old church downtown on public square dating back to 1820. The stained glass windows are lovely and include 4 by Louis Comfort Tiffany. There is an art gallery that features traveling exhibits from local, regional and national artists. You can enter it by the side entrance to the church.
