    Cleveland State University expands onto former site of Euclid Avenue Baptist, places church cornerstone in place of honor in courtyard:


    "A block saved from the Euclid Avenue Baptist Church's first home is on reverential display in the courtyard of The Edge, a new housing complex at Cleveland State University"

    "The stone is lushly decorated on two sides and bare on the other two, so it probably stood at an interior or exterior corner. One side is inscribed with notes from 'The Old 100th,' a tune used for...'Praise God, From Whom All Blessings Flow.'"

    There are "plans to install a sign in the courtyard to explain the stone's story, including its link to [John D.] Rockefeller, the church's Sunday school superintendent"
