Exploring the History of Maine's Agricultural Fairs

A goal of the Lost Trotting Parks Heritage Center is to highlight the history of the early agricultural societies and farmer clubs that once existed in the State of Maine. The Cumberland Farmers' Club traces its roots to 1868. The posts and storyboards on the Cumberland Fair give you an idea of what the is today and through your imagination how it may have looked in the 19th and early 20th centuries. In several of the storyboards readers will find the names of officers and individuals who offered special premiums. Perhaps a search for the descendants of these individuals could enrich our knowledge and the images of the history of the Cumberland Farmers' Club.
