Hower House

Akron’s Hower House, completed in 1871, is one of the finest examples of Italianate style in the country. It is filled with furnishings of the Hower family collected over a period of 100 years. You can visit this 26 room mansion at No Cost during 2015 by showing your Stow Historical Society membership card. Guests with SHS members will be admitted for $4. Thank you to the Directors of Hower House for this generous offer.

If you did not receive a membership card when you paid your dues, please contact President John Baranek at 330-689-2852. We plan to have membership cards available at our June 22nd meeting. Go to for more information on tours.
