We are considering the possibility of beekeeping on our property on Race Lane Rd in Okeana in Butler County. Are there any regulations, laws, licenses etc that I need to be aware of before making the investment in equipment?

I strongly urge that you visit the Ohio Department of Agriculture's Apiary Program to seek information about what you need to do to get started with beekeeping. They provide a wealth of information on all facets of beekeeping:
I would also recommend you check with your municipality concerning any regulations regarding having beehives. It's better to check first so you don't experience any disappointing surprises later.
