Akron's Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens kicks off 2023 season on April 1

This year's theme inside the Manor House is "Connections: Love and Ties that Bind."

AKRON, Ohio — Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens -- one of Akron’s most well-known destinations -- will open to the public for the 2023 season starting April 1.

This year's theme inside the Manor House is "Connections: Love and Ties that Bind." According to a press release from Stan Hywet, it looks at relationships within the Seiberling family. 

" [It] explores the personal relationships in the multi-generational household of F.A and Gertrude Seiberling. There is a particular focus in the exhibit on the six Seiberling children and how their connections made through marriage affected not only the family dynamic, but the community around them." 

All season long, which runs through December 30, guests can enjoy a robust lineup of public and new educational programs. 

"New education programs include monthly Twilight Walks from April - August, a class on building a pollinator garden on May 20, and an evening to view the Perseid meteor shower on August 12," according to Stan Hywet's release. 

Stan Hywet is also offering a variety of self-guided and guided tours this season including the Guided Manor House Tour, the Nooks & Crannies Tour, and beginning in May, the Guided Garden Tour. The Outdoor History Tour, a companion to the "Nooks" tour is offered monthly, from May - September.

Throughout the month of April, guests who buy a self-guided tour ticket and donate a non-perishable food item when they arrive will be given a second ticket for free. All food donations will be given to the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank.

Stan Hywet is located at 714 N. Portage Path in Akron, Ohio. For more information and to purchase tickets, click here
