“Beautiful Old Church”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

The Old Stone Church is the most famous church in northeast Ohio. Beautiful stained glass andstone church. Originally built in 1834, it is just as beautiful today as it was then. A popular place for weddings, we were married there.

“Beautiful old church with breathtaking Tiffany windows.”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

When we walked in to the sanctuary we were immediately greeted by Larry, a very friendly and knowledgable tour guide who took us all around and gave us an interesting history of the church. It is one of the oldest churches in the country. Words cannot explain the beauty and majesty of it. The wood trim, ceilings, balcony, pews etc. were spectacular. If you are interested in architecture, stop and see this!

“A nice surprise; definitely worth a stop when you're downtown”
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!”
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”
Reviewed 23 January 2013

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