The Glasgow Courier - Serving Proudly As The Voice Of Valley County Since 1913

Remember When 

In Search of the History


September 12, 2018

When reading a past issue of the Courier I commented on the photo on the Courier Memories page of the Northeast Montana Fair, date unknown. My comment was on the attire of the audience. Many men wearing suits and ties and all of the hats worn by the females in the group.

It has been many a year since that picture was taken. I can’t picture many of our present-day fairgoers in that attire.

Now my husband’s comment was a completely different nature, something like this was not the Northeast Montana Fair. We are definitely not on the same wave length, but yes he was correct---it could not be the Northeast Montana fair. Probably the Valley County Fair.

Do you remember just when the name change came about? And to go back even further, does anyone remember where the County Fairgrounds originally were located? I would really love some info on the history of the fair, and of course I would like it much better if I didn’t have to spend hours researching, since that is not a strong point of mine. Maybe someone at the Museum would point me in the correct direction if I would mark a day on my calendar to make a stop there. That would probably have to be a wintertime project because I easily get sidetracked onto other items when I make a stop there. Remembering is why I love living in the “Middle of Nowhere.”
