Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens is one of the finest examples of the American Country Estate movement, which flourished during the Industrial Age. It is one of Akron’s only National Historic Landmarks and also the nation’s 6th largest Historic Home open to the public.

Built between 1912 and 1915 by F.A. Seiberling, co-founder of The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, and his wife Gertrude, Stan Hywet is an accredited museum of the American Alliance of Museums, and encompasses five historic buildings and eight historic gardens on 70 acres. 

Throughout their lifetimes, the Seiberlings set a lovely example for their large family who in 1957, chose to follow their parents’ legacy of generosity by gifting Stan Hywet to the Akron community. This gift makes it possible for us to open the gates for the benefit and enjoyment of future generations. In doing so, we are also fulfilling the family motto   “Non Nobis Solum” or ‘Not for Us Alone’ and welcoming our guests as warmly today as they did a century ago. 

You will find the beautiful gardens, grounds and Tudor Revival Manor House provide a timeless backdrop for every special occasion from wedding ceremonies, receptions, and private parties to corporate events and photography sessions.
