The History of the Murray County Fair
The research is complete, the writing is done and the book is now for sale!    This very readable history book contains a lot of interesting stories and anecdotes about the Murray County Fair.

The title of the book refers to the contests that were held at the fair in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.   

There were contests to determine who was the prettiest baby and who was the homeliest woman in Murray County.     

But there were other contests as well, such as the ugliest man, handsomest woman, fattest baby, dirtiest man, and man with the biggest feet.     Contests of all sorts were very popular over the years.
