If you can appreciate Cleveland history, or if you really enjoy incredible stained glass windows and good pipe organ music this is the place to visit! The stained glass is from the old time artists and still looks incredible

Dating back to 1820, officially known as The First Presbyterian Society. The Old Stone Church has kept pace, becoming a symbol of spiritual leadership, community involvement and stability in the heart of the city. They have also restored the organ, which has beautiful sounds for Mass. A wonderful place to worship for a sense of peace!

Many of the photos here show the attractive exterior, but please take a few minutes and go inside. It's open in the middle of the day many weekends. If the front door isn't open,... More

what a lovely church. The person there was insightful, provided info on history of the church and the first people to establish it. It was cool to sit in the pew that the Lincoln's did for Pres. Lincoln's funeral. Really stunning

This is a beautiful Cleveland landmark. The church has beautiful stained windows. The inside is an even more beautiful place to worship that is very welcoming. The building has been well preserved.

The Old Stone Church was built in 1855 and sits regally on the edge of Cleveland's public square. The beautiful Tuscan style architecture in grey sandstone has survive fires and the test of time.Known for its stained glass windows it also has a clock tower on the right side.We were fortunate to find free parking only 3 blocks away.

Attended service here today, and it was quite inspiring. The church is very connected to the community. The doors open every day at 11 am, and tours are given on Fridays at 1:30 pm.
