Linda T is correct. Washington and Jefferson kept bees. Curious as to other people of noteworthiness who have kept bees. Surprising more presidents early on did not keep bees given their frequency on the farmstead.

I wonder how much Martha has to do with the actual beekeeping.  The reason I ask is I've heard her for years about her gardening (I know she's a gardener), and about her chickens, but I've only heard her mention bees recently.

OK, I did a google.  I guess she really has been keeping bees all along!

Having grown up in the shadow od Phildalphia my entire life, Franklin is a larger than life icon. I grew up going to visit all of his historical sites in Philadelphia and reading many of his writings. What an amazing man. Glad to know he kept bees.
