Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Darby Dan Farm is a produce, livestock, and thoroughbred horse breeding and training farm founded in 1935 near the Darby Creek in Galloway, Ohio by businessman John W. Galbreath. Named for the creek and for Galbreath's son, Daniel M. Galbreath, it was expanded from an original 85-acre farm into a 4,000 acre estate. Established in 1954 on the original area, Darby House today serves as a banquet and retreat facility. Still in the hands of the Galbreath family, it has 250 acres of woodlands, a 110-acre animal preserve, and approximately 3000 acres used for the commercial growing of food crops. The horse farm has 750 acres of blue grass pasture plus a large number of barns and breeding facilities. As well, 39 houses were built on the property.
