Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens is Akron’s only National Historic Landmark and Save America’s Treasures project. In 1898, F.A. Seiberling founded The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company. Between 1912 and 1915, he and his wife, Gertrude, built their country estate in Akron and named it “Stan Hywet” (Old English for stone quarry). It is one of a few remaining American Country Estate style houses in the country. In 1957 the non-profit organization that operates the musuem was given the house and grounds.
