Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens has published the third book in a series on the Seiberling family and the Estate. Now available is “The Gardens of Stan Hywet,” a look at the historic gardens and how they were designed.
Stan Hywet is located at 714 N. Portage Path in Akron.
Filled with landscape plans, photographs, behind-the-scenes stories and other details, “The Gardens of Stan Hywet” explores the vision of landscape architect Warren Manning and the ways his design embraced the existing natural features of the property. Like the first two books, “The Seiberling Family” and “The Gate Lodge,” “The Gardens of Stan Hywet” is soft cover and available for purchase for $15 in Molly’s Shop.
“The third book in our series offers a detailed look at the history of the gardens and how they were planned by Warren Manning, installed, and then ultimately restored,” said Julie Frey, director of Museum Services/Curator and author of all three books in the series.
Additional books will be released yearly covering a variety of subjects.
Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens, the nation’s 6th largest historic home open to the public, is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, a distinction that is held by only 1,056 of the estimated 35,000 museums in the United States.
