WEST AKRON -- Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens is giving visitors a look back at holidays of the past with this year’s Deck the Hall event. Joys of Christmas Past features animatronic figures previously used in Downtown Akron department store windows. A scene from “The Wizard of Oz” is shown at right bottom. The exhibit also features a look at past decades, such as the 1960s, which are shown at right bottom in the Blue Bedroom.

The grounds of the estate also are decked out for the season. Shown at left top in silhouette in the lighted Birch Tree Allee are Tracy and Ronald Piatt, of Cuyahoga Falls. Illuminated trees along the walkway are pictured at right top.

Among those who spent time at Stan Hywet this season were Sarah and Michael Wilson, of West Akron, who are pictured at left bottom with their 8-month-old daughter, Berkley.

Deck the Hall is open Dec. 15-23 and 26-30. For more information, call 330-836-5533 or go to www.stanhywet.org.
