Hower House

Commissioned by local industrialist John Henry Hower and designed by renowned Akron architect Jacob Snyder, the Hower House fills its 28 rooms with mementos from a storied past. The National Historic Landmark—built in 1871—is well preserved, from the 2.5-acre lawn to the mansard roof. Eleven months out of the year, the Victorian mansion hosts tours and programs, wherein visitors can examine treasures from the Howers' world travels.

Customer Reviews

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this Groupon! Absolutely loved the tour and the staff. The staff was so friendly and accommodating! One of our most favorite things was having tea and gingerbread at the conclusion of the tour. We had the opportunity to meet new people and discuss the history of the home. Would recommend this tour to everyone!

The tour guide's sense of humor took a while to get used to, but she was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed our tour.
