Visit three of Cleveland’s most historic and well-known buildings – Old Stone Church, St. John Cantius Church and Sokolowski’s University Inn.
Dating back to 1820, the Old Stone Church is designed in Victorian Romanesque style and features golden oak and dark mahogany paneling, graceful carvings, a trussed wood, barrel-vaulted ceiling and beautiful stained-glass windows, including four Louis Comfort Tiffany windows
St. John Cantius Catholic Church was established in 1898, with services held in a refurbished streetcar barn. The current church, designed in what is often called the Polish cathedral style, was erected on the same site in 1925. Tremont’s Polish Festival is held each Labor Day weekend on the church grounds.
Sokolowski’s University Inn has been serving Polish and Eastern European comfort food since 1923. Overlooking the Cuyahoga River and Cleveland skyline, this James Beard Foundation “American Classics” Award-winning restaurant is a must-visit for locals and visitors alike. Cleveland’s oldest family-owned and operated restaurant has been featured on many television shows, including Michael Symon’s “The Best Thing I Ever Ate” and Anthony Bourdain’s “No Reservations.”
