TROLLEY TOUR OF MUTTON HILL WITH
THE SUMMIT COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY
Sunday, October 25, 1:00 - 4:00 pm
Last year SCHS rebranded the Perkins Stone Mansion and John Brown House as the “Homes on Mutton Hill”. This is actually a return to the historical name of the area. Colonel Simon Perkins Jr., son of one of Akron’s founders, at one time had over 1000 sheep grazing on the property surrounding the mansion. The stone wall built to pen in the sheep still stands around the house. Abolitionist John Brown lived in a small frame house on the property and managed the sheep.
The tour will begin at the Woman’s City Club, formerly the Stadelman mansion, and conclude at the Wojno-Forney home, once the gatehouse of Auld Farm, the estate of Charles B. Raymond and his wife, Mary Perkins Raymond.
