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.

We enjoyed ourselves so much the first day touring the manor, that we came back the second day to walk the gardens. We spent time relaxing and soaking up sunshine walking through the meditation gardens. This was just a lovely experience

My sister and I have lived within 50 miles of Stan Hywet all our lives. It's one of those places you "mean" to get around seeing. We went on Wednesday and wow, now it's a must see when we have out-of-town company. We registered ahead...More

Peace and tranquility remain her as compelling attractions and most serious business. I go here rather than watch ice hockey or football games. See this place and stay there for as long as you benefit from solitary like mediative periods of rest. The key word...More

I found this looking for something to do on the day we had a flight out. I wish we had more time to explore. The gardens are beautiful. We toured the 65,000 square foot Tudor style home. It was built by one of the founders...More

We did a manor tour and loved it. Very interesting and lots of great information. We had two teenagers with and they liked it as well. Fun to imagine what it was like a hundred years ago when fully operating as a large household. The...More

Is there any plan to have a Downton Abbey tea or a weekend coming up this year? I know the Biltmore has many costumes from the series on display soon. I think it would be great to invite visitors to dress in DA era costumes to have a special day at the Hall!
