Clary Gardens planning bus trip to Stan Hywet Hall

| November 14, 2018

COSHOCTON – Join friends and family of Clary Gardens on Thursday, Dec. 13, for a bus trip to Stan Hywet Hall in Akron, for a guided-Manor tour and famous Deck The Hall event – One of Ohio’s largest and most spectacular holiday traditions.

Guests will leave Clary Gardens (bottom parking lot) at 1 p.m. and will arrive back to the gardens between 8:30 and 9 p.m.

Stan Hywet is illuminated inside and out with more than one million lights with a “Winter Wonderland” theme. The estate features a historic 65-room Tudor Revival Manor, the Gothic Revival Conservatory, the Gate Lodge and 70 acres of artistically landscaped grounds and formal gardens.

Guests will spend the first hour (3 to 4 p.m.) on a guided-tour of the Manor House, the former estate of F. A. Seiberling, co-founder of The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company. The group will learn what life was like when the Seiberling family called this estate “home.”

After the Manor guided tour, the group will get to experience the famous self-guided “Deck The Hall” event with an outdoor light show, courtyard tree lighting, live music in the Manor House, treats for purchase around the cozy warming courtyard fire, the 20ft poinsettia tree in the tropical Corbin Conservatory, and/or visit Molly’s (gift) shop or Molly’s Café. All bus riders can spend their time after the guided tour, as they please, experiencing any of the areas of the estate they prefer (self-guided).

The cost of the bus trip is $40 per person which includes transportation and combo-ticket admission to both the guided-Manor tour and Deck the Hall events. Registration must be paid to Clary Gardens in full by Wednesday, Dec. 5, but don’t wait this long to RSVP, seats are filling quickly.

Trip guests should dress for the weather including appropriate footwear for outdoor walking. Call or e-mail Clary Gardens with questions: 740-622-6524 or [email protected].
