Still TRIPPin" On Wednesday! Beatiful Pics of Stan Hywet

By
Home Inspector with H.I.S. Home Inspections (Summit, Stark Counties)

The "Gardens" At Stan Hywet Akron, Ohio

The picture made me start remembering the great weather we enjoyed this year in the fall around here. It was exceptionally clear, warm, and mostly dry (not a lot of rain). If you are ever in Akron, be sure to visit Stan Hywet Mansion and grounds. It is spectacular inside and out.

A view of the back of the main house

There is a lot tot see, including an aviary with hundreds of live butterflies.

Aviary and Greenhouse

The "Vineyard"

This is a view as you walk through the vineyard.

Garden shaded path leading to the "Quarry"

Lovely garden shaded path that leads to the Quarry, and retention ponds. This estate at one time was entirely self-sufficient from outside sources, growing its own food, cattle, producing its own electricity and water.

And finally, this is one of the terraces that overlook the Japanes Gardens.

Stan Hywet was built in the 1920's by the John Seiberling family, who founded Goodyear, and Seiberling Tire Companies.

Steve, people around here sometimes think there was a guy named 'Stan Hywet" who either built or owned this porperty, but neither is the case. It is actually Old English, and means "stone quarry" which reflects the even earlier use of the property.

I went there back in 1995 I think it was. I love visiting historic places like that.

Talk about a Mc Mansion those were the days of great excess... and again what followed was the great depression... Hmmm.

Mary, yes it is unfortunately a kind of sad commentary on acquiring excesses beyond what is necessary, and at the same time a legacy.

Doing inspections, blogging, doing group presentations, and general home chores combined take up more housr than there are in a day. Gets more difficult to find time to blog, (unfortunately) :(
