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 celebrating its milestone 100th anniversary in 2015. Stan Hywet is 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." 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 Association of Museums.

We toured Stan Hywet in October and didn't realize it was Ohio Mart as well. Double bonus! We toured the house, the gardens, enjoyed the amazing crafts and had the most wonderful time. I highly recommend this masterpiece. Such a treasure!

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.
