The Livingston Civitan Club presented to the county court on September 6, 1962 a deed to 40-acre tract of land located on the Monterey highway on which to build a county fair. This land had been purchased by Civitan Club from Bradley Qualls in 1961 for the sum of $14,000.00. The Overton County Court voted $25,000.00 in bonds at the April term 1963 to be used in construction of buildings and improving the new fair grounds. A contract was let by this court to Byrd Dillon a local contractor on the low bid of $16,890.00 to erect a grandstand and other buildings on the newly acquired fair grounds. The Women’s building was erected in 1972 through the efforts of Mrs. Raleigh Needham and an appropriation by the county court. The horse shows and showing of fine cattle are now and have been the special attractions of this ongoing fair.
