Directions to Old Stone Church
Old Stone Church is located on Public Square right in the heart of Downtown Cleveland. Follow the signs on any of the major highways to Public Square. Once you get to Public Square, you can’t miss us! We are in the northwest quadrant of Public Square, at the intersection of Rockwell and Ontario Streets. For more detailed directions, click on the “Directions” link on the map to the right. During office hours, when the Sanctuary doors are closed, visitors may enter the church through the Ontario Street entrance.
Old Stone Church is convenient to the many RTA buses that stop on Public Square as well as the Rapid Transit station at Tower City.
Free parking is available on Sunday mornings at the Public Square West lot on W. 3rd Street, which is conveniently located south of the former John Q’s Restaurant (in the 55 Public Square building) and to the north of the Renaissance Hotel (see map on left). Bring your ticket from the lot into the church to get it stamped. There is also limited on-street parking on Sunday mornings. When visiting the church at other times, please call for parking information.
FREE Valet Parking on Sundays
Free valet parking is available at the Ontario Street entrance starting at 8:45am. (No additional gratuity is expected.) Everyone—families, elderly, physically limited—is encouraged to use the service. The attendants will be on duty until the after-church programs are completed.
Old Stone Church is handicapped accessible through the Ontario Street entrance. If you need assistance please tell one of our greeters at the door. Old Stone Center, our adjoining parish house, is equipped with an elevator to all floors. Wheelchairs are available for use in the church. The wheelchair seating areas are conveniently located along the inside aisles with companion seating in the adjacent pew. Ask any Usher or Greeter for directions to our wheelchair-accessible restroom facilities. We offer large-print worship materials on request. Please ask an Usher for a large-print bulletin. Large-print Bibles (yellow dot) and Hymnals, texts only (red dot) are on a cart at the back of the Sanctuary. Special amplified headsets are available for hearing-impaired guests.
Note on the Ohio Concealed Handgun Law
Carrying a concealed handgun is a privilege in Ohio, and with this privilege comes a responsibility to be aware, not only of the common sense rules of safe firearm handling, but the laws that affect how, when and where you can carry your firearm. The law sets forth several places where the license does not allow you to carry a handgun. The law, R.C.2923.126(B), lists places that concealed handguns are prohibited, including places of worship, daycare centers and school premises. While the Old Stone Church Sanctuary is easily recognized as a place of worship, some visitors may not be aware that Old Stone Church’s parish house, the Old Stone Center, is home to the Old Stone Education Center and Daycare Center. Revised Code 2925.01(P) establishes that it is an offense to carry a concealed handgun within 1,000 feet of a school facility. You may obtain more information on the Concealed Carry law from the office of the Ohio Attorney General at http://www.ag.state.oh.us.
