The Christmas tour was a lot of fun. Packed and a little crowded but still well worth it! The grounds are lit up as well at this time of year and make it even more special. Parking was a hassle, but they had shuttle buses to make it easier.

An interesting look back in history of what life was like for the powerful and rich tire manufacturers. The old saying "where the rubber meets the road" was actually coined about Akron, Ohio

Stan Hywet is a must see. One of the largest houses in the United States on 70 beautiful acres. Many of the furnishings are from medieval England and are beautiful and distinctive.

This is the home of one of the rubber companies families. It is well preserved and even expanded. A true treasure to the city.

Through the guided tour you are able to see the beautiful surroundings and interior of this Grand place. The guides are very well versed on the period history of the mansion. The outdoor butterfly enclosure and gardens will leave you breathless.
