Stan Hywet Hall was designed not only as the Seiberlings’ family home, but also as a space for entertaining. The entryway motto, Non Nobis Solum (Not for Us Alone), defined the the family’s intentions to use their home as a community space. Fundraisers, meetings, musical performances and lectures were regular occurrences on the estate.
In 2022, Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens will celebrate this generosity with, Entertaining: You’re Invited. This theme features an exhibit in the Manor House showcasing how the estate was used as an event space, with a deep dive into the types of parties and events that were held there, and who attended. The exhibit will also explore how the staff at Stan Hywet Hall created these events, and what was going on behind-the-scenes to orchestrate a party or event at Stan Hywet.
We invite you to visit when we open our doors for the 2022 season on April 1.
