The John Brown house is a historical house located in Akron where John Brown once lived. Tober Building Company was selected to renovate the exterior of the building. The house has the original siding on it and Tober will be replacing necessary boards to match the original material. Construction is to begin this winter.

John Brown is a historical figure that had a voice in the political conversation about slavery that eventually led to the civil war.
