Architecture is one of the defining features of any community. Just consider the Cape Cod style home… this is a structure that is literally named after the community where it is found! Here in Northeast Ohio, Berea sandstone is a common defining element of many architectural works.

From afar, it might look like this is the weirdest building in Cleveland. Up close? Quite honestly, it’s every bit as weird when you get up close. Nonetheless, this unique building in Cleveland is adored by many. Let’s take a virtual visit… what do you say?!
