In 1846 Canfield hosted its first Fair. The first year the Fair took place within the fledgling fair grounds, it boasted a wide array of animals and other interesting things, like: 250 oxen, 51 full blooded cattle, 62 graded cattle, 44 draft horses, 64 saddle and carriage horses, 37 sheep and 56 hogs, as well as the first device known as “Blodget’s Sewing Machine” and a patented shower-bath.
