Edited by Ann Rowe. Published by the Campbellford-Seymour Heritage Society
A Walk Down Memory Lane: 150 Years of the Campbellford-Seymour Agricultural Society, 1854-2005 looks at the early history of Seymour Township and the importance of agriculture in the development of the local area. It documents the emergence of the local Fair Board and its development through to its 150 th anniversary in 2004, including the acquisition of property and the building of fair structures. It also includes an examination of related farm associations and businesses, the dairy industry, and the diversified farming of the Campbellford-Seymour area.
Much of the content was gleaned from the minute books of the Agricultural Society and the Homecraft Division, as well as from local newspapers, Prize Lists of the Fair and the extensive archival and photographic records of both the Agricultural Society and the Heritage Society.
Started in 1854, The Campbellford Seymour Agricultural Society is the longest running organization in the community. The book shown below is available at local libraries and through the Campbellford Seymour Heritage Society. Click on the book below to find out how to order your copy.
