Stan Hywet Hall

714 North Portage Path, Akron, Summit County, Ohio

Completed in 1915, for Frank Seiberling (1859-1955), founder of the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, and his wife Gertrude Penfield (1866-1946). After touring over twenty English manors, the Seiberlings drew their principal inspiration for their sprawling Tudor-Revival pile from Haddon Hall, Compton Wynyates, and Ockwells Manor. It was designed by Charles Sumner Schneider, a native of Ohio who studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris and had been working in New York for "the Dean of American Architects" George B. Post. Only marginally smaller than Casa Loma in Toronto, it covers 64,500-square feet making it among the largest historic houses in North America. Today, it is open to the public as Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens....
