 In the early days of our country before WalMarts and Interstate Highways - people gathered together for a variety of reasons - to sell and trade, barter for goods, hold meetings, court, church services, and militia musters. Early settlers were spread out in the territory and rarely had a chance to visit with their neighbors. So these gatherings always took on a festive and carnival air. News of these gatherings would bring folks from far and wide. They were forced to bring food or buy what was available. And every good tradesman would also show up to sell his wares.

So step back in time with us to one such gathering - The Fair at New Boston.
