Buckeye State Destinations

When the flowers start to bloom in the month of March, there is no better place to visit, in Ohio, than the Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens near Akron, Ohio. This estate was built by the founder of the Good Year Rubber and Tire Company, F. A. Seiberling, in 1915. This stately manor is comprised of 65 rooms including two tennis courts, croquet and Roque courts, horse trails and an indoor swimming pool and gymnasium, and since 1957 has been open to the public for visitation.

But what really makes this estate special during this time of year is the bountiful flower gardens all across the countryside surrounding it.

The main entrance of the estate is lined with rows of birch trees that create a white tunnel during the season that they bloom.

In the English gardens reside over 3,300 perennials that reflect in the garden pool and are overshadowed by the great garden statues.

Many other gardens decorate this beautiful manor and make it a historical landmark in the history of the United States.
