Barberton was founded in 1891 by industrialist O.C. Barber. Barber built 35 structures for the Anna-Dean Farm, all in the French Renaissance Revival style. Barber intended the farm to be the basis of an agricultural college, but he did not complete its financing before his death. Barberton became known as the "Magic City" because of its rapid population growth during its formative industrial years, at a time of waves of immigration from eastern and southern Europe. During the 1980s Barberton suffered a precipitous economic decline due to restructuring in heavy industry and job losses, similar to much of the rest of the industrial American Midwest. In 1985, key business leaders created the Barberton Community Development Corporation, which today functions through the Board of Directors of 20 stakeholders and city members. With the creation of the Community Foundation in the late 1990s, it has facilitated the creation. of over 2000 jobs and in excess of $100 million in business expansion projects. The city's schools have also improved academic performance since the 1990s. The population was 26,550 at the 2010 census. Lying directly southwest of Akron, it is a suburb of the Akron metropolitan area.

The most significant of the remaining buildings is Barn No. 1, the former Dairy Barn, restored in 1985 and now the world headquarters of the Yoder Brothers Corporation, horticulturists. The mansion was demolished in 1965.
