Massillon Heritage Foundation
Custodian of Five Oaks, an Historic Massillon Landmark on the National Register of Historic Places
Five Oaks sits majestically on a slight knoll on the corner of Fourth Street and North Street in Massillon, Ohio at 210 4th Street NE, Massillon, Ohio 44646. It served as the home of J. Walter and Flora McClymonds and their two daughters, Ruth and Edna.
The home, designed by renowned architect Charles F. Schweinfurth, features eclectic exterior architecture, ten fireplaces, extensive unique wood carvings, a leather-walled billiard room, Tiffany windows, and a third floor ballroom. The home, named for five oak trees on the property, was completed in 1894.
Five Oaks serves now as the home of the Massillon Woman's Club and is available for rental for weddings, corporate meetings, showers and private parties. Tours are available by appointment or on Sundays in July and August. Please browse through the web site for information about events, membership and the history of Five Oaks.
