The City of Barberton’s mission is to strengthen our neighborhoods, deliver superior services, provide excellent programs and facilitate economic opportunity to enhance the quality of life for all of our residents. "Barberton Forward, Neighborhoods First"
Since Barberton's founding in 1891 by noted industrialist Ohio Columbus Barber, Barberton has been an innovative community in industry and new technology. Barber's Diamond Match company was a leading producer of wooden matches in 1891. Later, Barber developed an elaborate farm complex made up of some 40 brick barns and 400 acres, giving the nation one of the first agracorps and experimental farms.
This spirit of innovation continues to thrive in Barberton today.
When you visit Barberton, you will find many exciting and interesting opportunities. During the summer, music fills the evening air at the Gazebo at Lake Anna with free concerts.

The Mayor's Barberton Forward; Neighborhoods First Initiative is to improve safety and appearance of our neighborhoods, create and promote Barberton neighborhoods, and improve the quality of life for Barberton residents.
