In 1957 the first permanent building was erected on the fairgrounds for the housing and showing of livestock and for the first time an Ohio governor was present to dedicate the building and visit the fair.
The Gallia County Junior Fair provides every county youth with an opportunity to exhibit his or her talents and be recognized. It is the culmination of a year of hard work by the youths and their adult leaders; an exhibition of cooperation and constant effort on the part of both county and city residents; and is the goal and the end result of the Gallia County Agricultural Society.
