Silverhill Fair




SILVERHILL FAIR











         November 28, 1921, the Silverhill Community and Fair Association organized. They held their first annual Fair as a one-day, outdoor event on "the hill" at what is now the Silverhill Oscar Johnson Memorial Park.



         The year next it was held in the colony-owned two-room school building. The large crowds attending this event led to the addition of two rooms to the school.




         In 1924, the association and community patrons built the Community Hall for such functions. The Community Hall was a large wooden building, located where the fire hall was later built.

         In 1950, the first annual Baldwin County Fair was held at the Livestock Coliseum in Robertsdale on October 24 through 28, sponsored by the Baldwin County Cattle and Fair Association, Inc.


OLD TIMER'S PARADE

Held at the beginning of the Fair in the late 1930's.
