2006 Best Residential Historic Renovation

The left crib of the farmhouse was built in 1818 and the right crib was added in 1832 by John Hoover. The Hoover family (of the Hoover Vacuum Company) owned the farmhouse and 167 acres of land until they donated it to the University of Akron in 1970. The land was used for the new Wayne College. The farmhouse was left vacant for many years and suffered severe damage due to exposure to the elements until the university decided to save the farmhouse. The objective was to retain the historical character of the farmhouse, while addressing today's needs for access, comfort and technology that would allow it to be used for special functions. Today, the farmhouse is an active part of campus life, and it provides an additional bit of heritage to the students and faculty of the university.
