Barberton, Ohio is part of the Akron Metropolitan Area, and is known as The Magic City. It is home to Lake Anna which is a 21-acre natural spring lake named after founder O.C. Barber’s daughter, Anna Laura Barber.
You can catch this area in full bloom during the much-anticipated Mum Festival held yearly at Lake Anna, where 17,000 different chrysanthemums create over a million mum blooms in an array of different colors. Barberton became known as the Magic City due to a growth in population during its formative industrial years. Barberton boasts a small town feel just outside of The City of Akron.
