Celebrating Our Past: Green County Fair, 1913
The 1913 Green County Fair saw large crowds turn out at the fairgrounds. In the foreground, visitors admire an airplane of the era when, being just 10 years after the Wright brothers made their historic flight near Kitty Hawk, modern aviation was still in its infancy. The fair itself dates to 1853; the first outdoor fair was held in 1854. A small grandstand was built in 1886 and enlarged in 1901. (Monroe Times archive photo)
