General Information
History

In 1886, the Shenandoah County Agricultural Society organized an event for the purposes of showcasing area agricultural, horticultural and commercial products. A newspaper article lists the dates of the 1887 fair as being October 4 - 7th. That article goes on to say that all trains stop within a few hundred yards of the gates, and Hack lines will run from the center of town. Entertainment including horse racing of every description is listed as the main program on the grandstands, with lady bareback riders, chariot races and riding on two horses as a team. These are some of the first known records of the fair happenings. Unfortunately, not enough interest was generated in the project and it fizzled sometime in 1915.
