The Declaration of Independence was only 78 years old when the first recorded fair was conducted in Greenbrier Valley, Virginia. In 1854, the Greenbrier Agricultural Society began organizing and conducting an annual fair where agricultural accomplishments could be displayed. This popular event attracted entries of livestock, produce and household items from farms throughout the area.
