It is also significant for its associations with the original owners Frank A. and Gertrude Seiberling, the former being the founder of Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company and Seiberling Rubber Company, and this a leading figure in American manufacturing history. -- Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS OH-50)
