Hower House Museum Guild

The Hower House Museum Guild was formed in 2016/2017, resulting from the merger of two volunteer groups at the HHM:  the Friends of Hower House (founded 1974) and the Hower House Victorians (founded 1979).

The Friends of HH saved the mansion from demolition and an uncertain future, raised funds to renovate and restore its former majesty.  The Victorians were formed to assist with daily operations and provide tours of the museum.

Become a Volunteer

Volunteers are the lifeblood of the Hower House Museum.  Although the property has been owned by The University of Akron since 1970, the dedicated volunteers donate the priceless gift of their time and talents to keep the doors open to the public during tours, programs, and events offered at the HHM.
