1912 Agricultural Society Fair Book

Another item put on display at the museum was a schedule book for the 1912 (26th) fair put on by the Fowlerville Agricultural Society. The society was organized in 1886, with the first fair in 1887.

One note of interest was in the early years of the fair, it was held in October. This was probably due to most of the crops having been harvested which would free of most farmers time so they could participate more fully. This year the fair was held the last week of July and was great fun for all.
