Played by our Stan Hywet Historic Players acting troupe, this interactive tour takes place on the dates above.  While you're here, enjoy a game of vintage base ball  (historically accurate spelling) as our resident team, the Akron Black Stockings take on the competition, and a concert by the Stan Hywet Goodyear Band.
