Old Stone Church in Cleveland

The Old Stone Church, a Presbyterian congregation on Public Square in Cleveland dates back to 1820 when Cleveland was just a village. Several disastrous fires later the present building has been in this spot since 1858, squeezed in amongst newer and taller structures. The church offers noontime services, an art gallery and concerts on a glorious pipe organ. I visited on my lunch hour from jury duty this week and was welcomed and inspired. If you're nearby it's worth a visit.

I have always wondered about the inside of the building as I would either walk or drive past.

IF I ever go downtown again, I may check out the inside.

Looks like a church my boyfriend and I would love to check out. My boyfriend has a weakness for churches with a history.
