Guests in the Manor House could time travel to the 1920s yesterday during Living History; our vintage "base ball" club, the Akron Black Stockings, played the Whiskey Island Shamrocks and Bluegrass Barons on the Great Meadow; and the Stan Hywet Goodyear Concert Band gave a wonderful concert nearby. Thanks to everyone for making it a perfect #summer Sunday on the estate. #stanhywet

Our Gala was this past Friday, where we recreated a speakeasy theme for a roaring 1920s vibe. All proceeds from this fun evening benefit Stan Hywet, helping us maintain and share this historic estate.

Thank you to our wonderful Gala chairs, Mark & Casey Juve, and Pat & Sarah O’Neill who ensured the success of fab evening. Big shout-out and thank you to all the volunteers (including the Stan Hywet Flower Arrangers), sponsors, attendees and staff for making it all possible. And must importantly, to everyone for supporting the Seiberling Legacy, Non Nobis Solum. #notforusalone #stanhywet

Happy National Nonprofit Day! Stan Hywet is excited to celebrate 64 years of serving the Akron community as a non-profit organization. Pictured are the Seiberling Heirs signing the Stan Hywet estate over to a foundation in the Billiard Room in 1957. Later that year on June 15, Irene Seiberling Harrison, eldest Seiberling daughter, spoke at the opening festival of Stan Hywet as a public space. #nationalnonprofitday

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.
