Ora Anderson Trail Tour

Posted in: Education, News, The Barn

The Dairy Barn has partnered with mAppAthens to produce the Ora Anderson Nature Trail tour!

This tour will take you along the Ora Anderson Trail, a loop trail around 1 mile in length. The Dairy Barn was originally built in 1914 and provided dairy products to the patients, workers, and staff at the Athens Asylum. Dairy operations ceased in the 1970s. Upon hearing the Dairy Barn was going to be torn down, a group of citizens led by Harriet Anderson and her husband, Ora (a well-known conservationist), and members of the Hocking Valley Arts Council, saved the Dairy Barn building as an arts center. Over the last 40 years, the pastures have turned into a wooded area. Read more about the Dairy Barn’s history
