Cattle Exhibition at the FairgroundsThis is a cattle exhibition at the Willimantic Fairgrounds (now Rec Park). The Willimantic Fair began in 1877 and was originally sponsored by the “Willimantic Farmers’ Club”. After sponsorship went to The Willimantic Fair Association, horse racing became the main attraction. But at the beginning, the Farmers’ Club wanted to focus on cattle and gardening exhibitions so that the fair “would not degenerate into a simple horse trot”.
