This website is devoted to Lorenzo Lorrain Langstroth (1810-1895), who invented the modern beehive in 1851. His hive revolutionized more than beekeeping, it revolutionized agriculture.

Rev. Langstroth (1810-1895) was a wry raconteur, and loved and understood bees. He was a highly educated Congregational minister, a manic-depressive, an abolitionist, an inventor, and an author.
