WEST AKRON — The Charles W. (“C.W.”) Seiberling Mansion, built in 1913 by C.W. Seiberling, who also co-founded the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co., is celebrating its 100th anniversary. It is located at 1075 W. Market St.

Warther Financial Group will host a closed event Aug. 3 to celebrate the milestone with local friends and neighbors and showcase the efforts of Robert Warther, who, according to company officials, spared the mansion’s demolition 25 years ago and has worked to renovate the landmark.

The C.W. Seiberling Mansion is listed on the National Register of Historic Places in Summit County. Charles’ brother, Franklin A. (“F.A.”) Seiberling built nearby Stan Hywet Hall at the same time, according to company officials.
