As a boy who grew up in Akron, F. A. Seiberling tramped the fields and woods outside of the city, hunting the area where stone had once been quarried. Even then, the dramatic views of the Cuyahoga Valley, natural vistas that spread before him like paintings, would stop young Frank in his tracks. He never forgot them. Years later, the founder of the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company would build Stan Hywet-the Old English term for stone quarry-a sixty-five-room Tudor Revival mansion on seventy acres of meticulously landscaped gardens, orchards, and vistas. The skill and artistry of photographers Ian Adams and Barney Taxel portray the splendor of all four seasons at Stan Hywet, now maintained through the Stan Hywet Hall Foundation. These vivid images depict the restored mansion in its magnificent setting, capturing the springtime charm of mayapples and periwinkle in the Dell, the classic elegance of Gertrude Seiberling's Music Room, and the stark grandeur of snow-covered oaks mirrored in a reflection pool. From spring mornings to Christmas celebrations, Steve Love narrates as the reader strolls through the rooms and halls of the mansion and rambles down the lanes through its magnificent gardens and into the lives of the Seiberlings. With a foreword by F. A.'s grandson, former congressman John F. Seiberling, Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens captures the Seiberling family motto, Non Nobis Solum, or, "Not for Us Alone"-a motto which remains engraved, to this day, above the entrance to the Manor House.
