|The last remaining CCC building on the grounds; the Deerfield fairgrounds used to be a camp for the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s|
We planned carefully just what "fair food" we would indulge in, and we only got one of any item and shared it. I think the only actual fair food -- as in deep-fried, not at all nutritious, items -- we got were a fried dough and a bloomin' onion.
We did take a bit of time and visit the CCC building and exhibit shown at the top of the post. The Civilian Conservation Corps had its Pawtuckaway Camp here in the 1930s, and there is a good bit of memorabilia in this building, as well as loads of Deerfield Fair history. Mr. T's dad was a member of the Civilian Conservation Corps and had great memories of his service with the CCC, so we wanted to look around this building a bit.
|Fireplace inside the CCC building. Today was chilly and the fire felt great.|
|Fireplace from a distance. Notice all of the fair ribbons hanging from the beams.|
|The sign reads "Deerfield Fair World Championship Horse Pulling".|
