Perkins Stone Mansion is a great piece of Akron's History as well as a very family friendly activity when doing their normal tour and i highly recommend it. I was fortunate enough to be included in a private event that allowed us to tour the Perkins Stone Mansion, gather some of the history of the Mansion from the many informative and more than kind Volunteers that were at this event, do some exploration to Spirits and Energies of some of Akron's former inhabitants from 1822 through around 1946.

A well-known Akron architect designed this house in the Second Empire Italianate style - The Mansion is filled with hundreds of treasures and furnishings the Hower family collected from around the world

Wed - Sat : 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm Sun - Tue : Closed

The Hower Museum is a must see in Akron. This Victorian mansion is unusual with a center entry hall with several rooms radiating from this circle. An amazing wooden circular staircase takes you up three levels. Each room is tastefully completed in either Victorian or Empire furnishings. The top floor houses the travel trunks, with all the stickers indicating how well traveled this family was. It is obvious that the furnishings were influenced by their world travels.

It was in this house and surrounding neighborhood where the miracle of recovery began for many hundreds of men and women individuals who went on to spread this welcome message of recovery around the world

What an AMAZING experience. It's strange that I live so close to where it all started and I haven't visited until founders day when it's packed full. I got goosebumps walking through this house, just thinking about all the things that happened in that house that helped AA continue to be the success it is today. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and professional. I got to do the third step prayer upstairs and it was such a spiritual experience. I will definitely be returning sometime.
