We've decided to do something a bit different for the Artifact of the Week this week... Cataloging is an ongoing process at any museum, and we've been doing quite a bit of that lately! It's really one of the most exciting activities that happens in a place like this, we've found some of the most amazing treasures in looking over our collections here. Many of the items we know quite a lot about, but a handfull present a bit of a mystery.
A few nights ago while cataloging items with our volunteer, Travis D. Elliot, he came across these fantastic trophies from Fairs in 1922, and 1927 and thought that they might be a good choice for Artifact of the Week! This presented us with a bit of a challenge, I don't know a whole lot about these items, so... Since it is our mission to preserve and present YOUR heritage, why not ask for people to submit their items of interest from Fairs of Greene Counties Past and share some memories that we can publish along with this article!
These specific Items are Pewter Trophy Cups, each inscribed, the first says "Waynesburg Fair 1922... Best Display" and the other "Waynesburg Poultry Show - 1927 - Best Leghorn in Show"
If you have any photos or memories from Fairs through out the history of Greene County, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org we would love to publish them on our website, and share YOUR stories. And remember, we appreciate all the support we receive from the community and we strive to make the History of Greene County Pennsylvania, fun, exciting and interesting for all!
