Apr 22, 2015
Certified masons from COI Stonework in Stow are carefully restoring the wall around Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens in Akron. Work to the 2,200-foot wall is being performed in increments of 50 to 100 feet. The project, which includes crafting and fitting each piece, is expected to take at least a year. Below, Alex Miller places stones.
