Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens: This is the nation’s 6th largest historic home open to the public – and it dazzles! The founder of The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, F. A. Seiberling, used his wealth in 1915 to create an estate in the country that is today an American treasure. The estate includes five historic buildings and eight historic gardens on 70 acres. Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens has many interesting sights and tales. One of which is giving birth to the world’s largest self-help movement in the history of mankind – Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). Throughout the mesmerizing gardens and ornate structures, there are nooks and crannies that blow the mind. And all of the furnishings are original. There’s even a butterfly conservatory.
