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.

Tours are available by appointment (minimum of 10 people) or on Sundays in July and August.
