I’ve written a number of articles on Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens, an iconic mansion here in Akron. Just to refresh your memory, It’s the only national historic landmark in Ohio. It once was the home to the Seiberling family, and is now an iconic museum. If you aren’t familiar with the Seiberlings, they are responsible for founding Goodyear Tire. They are also responsible for making Akron the rubber capital of the world. There are so many amazing events that take place all year round at the mansion. Murder mystery dinners, Christmas lighting events, and mansion tours to name a few. One of my favorites, of course being the fall event.
Ohio Mart is an arts, crafts and food festival that takes place in October at the mansion. These are the sort of events that remind you that the holidays are slowly creeping up on you. I think everyone goes through the initial shock of realizing you have to start planing for the season. An event like this helps to sort of get your mind flowing with ideas on what to gift friends and family.
