Over the 200 years Topsfield Fair has been running we have had a number of public administration express interest and contact us. We have preserved these letters, as that was the way of communication back then, for the public to see. The letters range from local to state to federal officials and everyone in between. We take pride in the history behind these letters as they are an important part of the Society history. The majority the 1940’s letters from 1944-1948 have to do with putting in the race track for horse racing. Check out the letters below to take a flashback to the 40’s to remember what it was like, or to even imagine what it was like!
