[Identification of item], Bourbon County Agricultural Society, Board of Directors records, 1875-1887, 1M47M52, Special Collections, University of Kentucky.
The society seems to been concerned largely with the direction and management of an animal agricultural fair, including securing appropriate facilities and entertainment, plus the selection of judges for evaluating livestock competition. Among those named as members of the society were C. M. Clay, Jr, Ben Bedford, E. G. Bedford and others.
The records consist of the minutes of the Board of Director meetings. These records shed light on the operation and function of local agricultural societies in late 19th century Kentucky and document the agricultural history of Bourbon County, Kentucky.
