August 19th, 2014 (WAUSEON,OH) The Fulton County Historical Society will be hosting “1864 at The Fulton County Fair” as part of their Hell & Homefront initiative which highlights the Civil War through Fulton County eyes. The featured event will be a mock event in which “1864 cabin residents are upset over the recent Ottokee courthouse fire and the boys held in the Andersonville, GA Prison. The Commissioners want your vote at the town hall to move the county seat to Delta.” Actual voting will take place in the historical Swancreek Township Hall located on the Fairgrounds.
Fair-goers will also be able to see a working blacksmith shop and crafting demonstrations. All buildings are open to the public during the fair free of charge. Buildings will be open Friday 1-7pm, Saturday and Monday 10am-8:00pm, Tuesday and Thursday 1:00pm-5:00pm and Wednesday 9:00am-4:00pm.
