O. C. Barber Dam near Robinson Ave.

This beautifully restored Dam and waterfall are part of the new Anna Dean Office Park near the intersection of Fifth Street and Robinson Ave on the East side of Barberton. The Society has helped this project with technical assistance and the return of the original O. C. B. date stone, which we rescued at the time of the green house demolition in 1978. A. Testa Builders have spent $300,000 on saving this Anna Dean Farm artifact, and for this we are most grateful. The waterfall runs continuously and its a great scenic area for photos

Members of the City, the Hospital, Testa Builders and the Society meet last October to rededicate the restored Dam and waterfall.

O. C. Barber Colt Barn Located at 740 Austin Drive on the edge of the 15 acre Anna Dean Park.

The Colt Barn was the first building purchased by the Society. The exterior restoration of this building was completed in 1998 thanks to a grant from the Barberton Community Foundation. Although not open for regular tours you are always welcome to stop and visit the Colt Barn whenever a Society member is around.
