Three cheers for our staff and volunteers!
Yesterday on a beautiful afternoon, we gathered to celebrate 8 staff for reaching 5 and 10 years of service at Stan Hywet, and over 50 volunteers for reaching various hour levels of service. Staff greeted volunteers with thank you signs, noisemakers, and flags as they drove up to the front of the Manor House to pick up their awards. A special shout out to longtime volunteers, Gary and Wayne, who received notable service awards for 7,500 hours and 10,000 hours!
And thank you to Swensons Drive-In Restaurants for providing us with an awesome lunch, and Sweet Sophie's Cookies for baking up some Stan Hywet-inspired takeaway treats 👏 😋

We look forward to next season!

We owe Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens a huge thank you.

We could list out all the *many* things they did to help keep Shakespeare and theatre alive this summer in our community while most of the country didn't get the opportunity, but it would be a long list. Suffice it to say, SHHG bent over backward to help Ohio Shakespeare return for its 19th consecutive summer season in a safe and responsible way. We are so grateful for our long and ongoing partnership. "What other answer can we make but thanks and thanks and ever thanks."

Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens

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, it 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 Americamade Akron the “Rubber Capital of the World.”Since 1957, it has been a historic house museum, open for public tours.

The estate is open 10am-6pm (last entry, 4:30pm) for tours, Tues.-Sun. from April - December; the estate is closed to the public on Mondays, except on Memorial Day and Labor Day, when regular operating hours are in effect. There are also many special events (times may vary) throughout the season, including the annual Easter Egg Hunt, two vintage car shows, a fall artisan craft fair, and Deck the Hall, our holiday event featuring more than one million Christmas lights inside the Manor House and outside in historic gardens and grounds. In addition to the 64,500 sq. foot, 65-room Manor House, the estate includes a conservatory and more than 70 acres of artfully landscaped grounds. It is Akron’s oldest National Historic Landmark and is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums.
