Bobcats at the Akron Association of Ohio University Women's annual
Have you ever driven by the University of Akron and wondered about the elegant mansion near campus? Hower House, built in 1871 by local industrialist John Henry Hower, is a Second Empire Italianate structure filled with unique treasures and furnishings collected by the Hower family during their travels around the world.
Join us for a continental-style breakfast in the dining room, followed by a guided tour of the current exhibit, “Wedding Fashions Through the Decades: 1880s-1960s.” This display includes wedding gowns, related items, and keepsakes from the Hower House Museum Collection as well as private collections and shows how bridal fashions evolved in response to world events. Following the tour, stop by the Cellar Door Store and browse this one-of-a-kind gift shop that features an array of Victorian and other lovely gifts.
