Overview
More
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 place is amazing. The house and gardens have been preserved just like they were when the Seiberling family lived there. The furnishings are all original to the house and many were antiques bought for the house in England. The gardens are spectacular and varied....More

My wife & I love coming here every year. The home represents the best of the classic millionaire homes. And every fall there have a huge craft festival on their grounds.

Thanks for your review and glad you enjoyed your Nooks tour. It is recommended that you purchase tickets in advance as some tours have the potential to sell-out on busier days. At this time we are only able to offer AAA discounts in person as...More
