The Anna Dean Farm Apiary, was located directly south of the Power House. This building was devoted to maintaining the bee keeping supplies for over 150 hives. The Anna Dean Farm hives kept the flowers and fruit trees and bushes planted around the Mansion well pollinated. Honey production was over 6000 pounds annually.
One of the smallest buildings built on the Anna Dean Farm, the Apiary was outfitted in the diamond brick pattern used on the Mansion and the buildings built closest to the Mansion.
These are various views of Apiary, from his book, "The Story of an American Farm" the last great project of Ohio C. Barber's life.
