Overview

Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens, located in Akron, Ohio, is the former home of F.A. Seiberling, the co-founder of The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, and his family. Completed in 1915, Stan Hywet is the one of the most important remaining examples of an American Country Estate built by the wealth created during the Industrial Age at the turn of the twentieth century, when the emergence of modern America made Akron the "Rubber Capital of the World." The Tudor revival Manor House is 64,500 sq. feet and the 6th largest home open to the public in the U.S. Open from April through December, Stan Hywet includes a 65-room Manor House, a conservatory and more than 70 acres of artfully landscaped ground. It is Akron's oldest National Historic Landmark and is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums.

This is a great place to visit when in the Akron area. It is beautiful and you can get a lot of history about the place or just stroll and enjoy the beauty if that's what you prefer.

We don't have rockers on the porch at Stan Hywet... but thanks for the other great comments. Next time, take our "Nooks and Crannies" tour for a more in-depth guided tour.
