Inscription.
Ohio Columbus Barber, a wealthy Ohio businessman and founder of Barberton, retired in 1905 to develop his Anna Dean Farm. Built in 1910, the colt barn was a part of this 3000-acre estate. Although originally intended for bulls, the building was converted in 1912 to a stable for colts. Akron architects Harpster and Bliss designed the barn, and it was the smallest on the farm. Like many buildings erected by Barber, the colt barn features the patriotic red, white, and blue color scheme he favored. Between Barber's death in 1920 and the founding of the Barberton Historical Society in 1974, all but nine of the estate's thirty-five original buildings were razed. The historical society saved the colt barn in 1978, which led to the birth of the city's historic preservation movement. The society completed restoration of the colt barn in 1998 with a grant from the Barberton Community Foundation.
 
Erected 1999 by The Barberton Historical Society, The Barberton Community Foundation, and The Ohio Historical Society. (Marker Number 14-77.)
