Akron – June 2014 – Fathers Day Car Show

Each Father’s Day Stan Hywet Hall in Akron hosts an exceptional classic car show. Stan Hywet is not a person, rather it is an old English phrase for Stone Quarry.

The house on the estate was built for the Seiberling family in the 1920s, and is one of the largest in America at 65,000 square feet. Seiberling founded Goodyear, where he made enough money for this mansion and the original 3000 acres that surrounded it.

It does however make for a spectacular setting for a car show.

The show takes places on the large lawn in front of the house.

An added bonus was being able to tour the grounds and gardens, completing a great day.
