Historical and Cherished Jacktown Fair

One of Greene County, Pennsylvania’s historical and cherished annual events is returning very soon, and it’s “Fair” to say that it is a weeklong traditional celebration that visitors across the nation would greatly enjoy. The traditional Jacktown Fair – which is held in the picturesque area of Wind Ridge in the western end of the county – is steeped in a rich, deep and very proud agricultural heritage that dates all the way back to 1866.

History in Greene

Founded in 1796, Greene County was established when Washington County was split as an act of Legislature. That brings over two centuries of history and mystery from the southwestern corner of Pennsylvania. Travel around the County with me as we explore a few historical sites.
