Preservation Alliance of Greater Akron Historic Home Tour - Part 4

Posted September 17, 2014

On Saturday, July 19, two city trolleys loaded with people passionate about preservation, architecture and Akron history were able to tour four beautiful homes in West Akron on the Preservation Alliance of Greater Akron's Historic Home Tour....and the homeowners said I could take pictures to share with all of you!

The last stop on the tour was to visit the home named, "The Anchorage." The Tudor Revival style home was built in 1925 for Paul and Florence Litchfield, who was President, and later CEO of Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co.

The home stands on a large, heavily-landscaped, 3-acre lot and is absolutely gorgeous - inside and out. Enjoy the photos!
