Please join us for the next McCauley Lecture on Monday, June 6 at 7 PM in the Fletcher Branch Library Community Room. This lecture, presented by the John Clinton Frye Western Maryland Room, explores the Great Hagerstown Fair: A Walk Down the Midway.

Fair lovers of all ages will enjoy a presentation by Raymond Holton highlighting the carnival midway attractions and special exhibits of the fair during the 1950s with photographs and personal recollections.The talk is guaranteed to stir the memories of those who visited the fair during that time period. Raymond Holton is a lifelong resident of Hagerstown. Among his many interests is his fascination with fairs, carnivals, and circuses. Residing several blocks from the Hagerstown Fairgrounds in the 1950s afforded him the opportunity to visit the fair frequently.
