Whose gargoyle is this?

Where is this gargoyle located?

The gargoyle resides on the exterior of Amasa Stone Chapel on the Case Western Reserve Campus.

The building was built in 1882 and named for Amasa Stone, an industrialist who built railroads and invested in mills in Ohio. He was also a major benefactor of Western Reserve College.

The chapel’s rather stark interior is a nineteenth-century view of the English Gothic style.

The chapel is used for assemblies, weddings and other events for the CWRU community. So, if you’re looking to embark on some Cleveland tourism of your own, the Amasa Stone Chapel is a must-see.
