Biographical or historical data
The Henry, Madison and Delaware County Agricultural Society was organized in 1870 and N.R. Elliott, Jackson Wisehart, W. J. Hillegoss, D.J. Yount, and D.M. Strickler served as its first officers. Beginning with $6,000 in capital, the society bought 20 acres near the town of Middleton in northwest Henry County, Indiana and improvements made to the grounds included an amphitheatre, vendor halls, stalls for livestock, and a half-mile race track. The society hosted annual fairs each August and in 1907 its 37th fair offered exhibits, horse races, and performances by the flying trapeze artists from Chicago, the Famous Bickett Family.
