Perkins Stone Mansion

The Perkins Stone Mansion was originally commissioned by Colonel Simon Perkins, the son of Akron's founder. Completed in 1837, but updated most recently in 2006, the sandstone building remains one of Ohio's most noteworthy pieces of Greek Revival architecture. It features numerous architectural highlights, including a two-story portico, elliptical frieze windows, and intricate interior woodwork. The historical site serves as a testament to Perkins' family history and the history of Akron and Summit County.

Customer Reviews

The tour was nice. We had a small group and all of our questions and curiousities were satisfied. We learned some interesting bits of city & county history in addition to the history of the family that owned the house. The people running the tour were very warm and friendly. I attended with my children and their friends. Our ages were ranging from 17 to 49. The house was beautiful and we enjoyed ourselves completely. Many thanks for offering the tours.

We had a wonderful and informative tour guide. The house was absolutely magnificent and was elegantly decorated for Christmas. The entire experience put us into a festive mood for the Christmas season and we cherish it as one of our Christmas memories of 2013. Thank you very much to the staff of the Perkins Stone Mansion for all the great work you put into keeping this historic house as grand as it was in its day. Thank you for preserving a beautiful piece of history for the public to appreciate.
