Make history with your event at the Old Stone Church
The Old Stone Church, gleaming in the sun on its island of green, looks serenely down on modern urbanized Monroeville all around it; an enduring monument to simpler times. Located in the center of the community, the building is Monroeville’s most distinctive landmark. The church is owned by the Municipality of Monroeville and has been placed under the stewardship of the Monroeville Historical Society who oversees its preservation, and makes it available to the public for weddings, meetings and special events.
The church is located at the corner of Monroeville Boulevard and Stoschein Road in Monroeville. If using a GPS, the address is: 4000 Monroeville Blvd., Monroeville PA, 15146
Limited space is set aside at the entrance as “pull off” parking reserved for the bridal party. Additional parking is available at the “Get-Go” across Monroeville Blvd from the Church (4000 Monroeville Blvd.), and at the nearby “Petco” lot across Stroschein Road (2723 Stroschein Rd.). Please DO NOT park in the "Eat 'n Park" lot.
The church is non-denomenational although the building reflects its Christian heritage. Couples considering a marriage ceremony will select the officiant of your choice. In addition, lists of local clergy, musicians, and wedding photographers are available upon request.
There is seating for 160 guests. An organ, piano, table for a unity candle and a pair of tall candelabras are available. Seperate changing areas for the bride and groom as well as restrooms and a common lounge area. Numerous restaurants, hotels and shopping nearby.

The Penn Mor Hotel and Restaurant. The Amantea family (bothers Joe, George, Albert, and Adam) built and ran the Penn Mor Hotel at the southern end of Mosside Blvd. The building was erected in 1947 as a hotel for workers who needed convenient rooms and meals. The restaurant expanded to serve a heavy volume of lunch-time customers from local businesses (Westinghouse Printing in Trafford, Westinghouse Electric, etc) with favorites being Hot Sausage on Bun and Pasta dishes. Eventually the brothers expanded the building to included banquet facility with large ballrooms (first and second floors) for dances, wedding receptions, and conferences. The business was sold in 1957.
