4/1: Stan Hywet Hall

Posted By on Wed, Mar 31, 2010 at 4:26 PM

When F.A. Seiberling made his (and Akron’s) fortune after founding Goodyear Tire & Rubber at the tail end of the 19th century, he built a lavish country-style estate called “Stan Hywet,” which is Old English for “stone quarry.” The age of industrial barons is long gone, and Seiberling’s descendents donated the building in 1957, to be overseen by a nonprofit and enjoyed by the public. These days, Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens (714 N. Portage Path, Akron, 330.836.5533) is an architectural and landscaping showcase that hosts teas, plant sales, car shows and al fresco Shakespeare in the summer. It opens for the season from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. today. Admission ranges from $4-$20, depending on which parts of the facility you want to visit and whether you take a guided tour. — Anastasia Pantsios
