Gunckel Pyramid – Woodlawn


Gunckel Pyramid - 1917

John Gunckel was a Toledo Philanthropist. What’s unusual was that he wasn’t a wealthy industrialist. He worked as a ticket agent for a railroad. He started the National Newsboys Association to help poor boys working as newspaper sellers and other low-level survival jobs. The three-sided pyramid was made from stones brought from all over the world. You can read more about him and the monument here.
