  • It is a place you do not hear about, but it is a place to see. The history is amazing, and with Al as your tour guide you will enjoy this place.  more »
  • It has been years since I was at these places and both have been renovated since then but I still enjoyed my tours and the information I was given. Another important piece of history.  more »

  • I was born and raised in Akron and remember coming here in elementary school on a field trip. That's about all I remembered about Perkins Stone Mansion, and I've always wanted to go back. It's a pretty stone Georgian home and grounds on Copley Rd. I took a tour, and it was very interesting. There was also information about the Perkins family, and there were indeed sheep still roaming the grounds. It was a very hot June day, but it was cool inside the house due to the 14 inch solid stone walls. It felt like air conditioning.The John Brown house across the street is closed for renovations right now, but it was still worth the trip to see the area and tour Perkins Mansion.
  • Interesting to learn more about the history of Akron. The tour guide knew the history but his presentation could use some work. Great place for those wanting to learn about local history.
