Allegany County Fairgrounds: 100 Years Scanning Sessions

We are thrilled to give our readers the opportunity to submit historic photos for our upcoming “Allegany County Fairgrounds: 100 Years” book project.

Residents will have an opportunity to have the memories and photos of families included in this collector's item. Do you have a picture of your dad shaking hands with Mario Andretti? Maybe, it’s you as a child — or your grandmother as a child — waving from the top of the Ferris wheel. Did you have a blue ribbon cow? A blue ribbon jam? Was your great-grandmother a 4-H’er when 4-H started in 1902? Your family’s history is part of the county’s history, and, particularly, in this case, can become a part of the published history of the Allegany County fairgrounds.

If you have photographs that meet the criteria below, please bring them to one of our scanning sessions listed here.

Or, submit your photos online through January 24 at:
