Barber, Ohio C.

Barber, Ohio C. Anna Dean Farm, Barberton, Ohio: The Story of an American Farm. Barberton Historical Society 1975. Facsimile reprint (1st pub. 1915). 105p, many photos. Folded site plan laid in. Good clean hardcover; no d.j. (as issued?). Occasional light page stains; back cover soiled. ** A proud owner's celebration of the "glories" of his 3500-acre farm, "extolling...the genius of its conception, the beauty and efficiency of its operation, and the unparalleled quality of its livestock" (Sadler and Sadler, American Stables: An Architectural Tour). He raised Belgian horses (herd sire was Jupiter Chief), "the largest herd of pure bred Guernsey cattle in all the world" (and other breeds), pigs, poultry, and game. The farm was basically self-sustaining, thanks to its fields and orchards. Some of the ornate turreted masonry buildings still survive. (Item ID: 16308)
