4-H/Grange/Museum

Tour the Fair

The Grange Building, circa 1922, houses the exhibits of Essex County Granges and the Topsfield Fair Farm Museum. The building itself is a well preserved example of post & beam construction.

The Grange, a fraternal organization founded in 1867, has been a participant in the Topsfield Fair since the turn of the twentieth century. An annual independently judged competition is held among participating Granges whose displays must adhere to published guidelines. Statewide Junior Grange contest displays are also exhibited.

The Farm Museum displays artifacts, photos and a brief history from area farms. Most nights the committee provides entertainment on its small indoor stage. A permanent, functioning Model Train Exhibit brings delight to fairgoers of all ages.

The Grange Museum also serves as the home of the 4-H department, as well as their numerous competitions, displays, and exhibits. 4-H at Topsfield Fair serves multiple purposes. First and foremost we give 4-H members the opportunity to exhibit the knowledge and skills that they have developed in their 4-H project area(s), whether that is a 4-Her showing a horse or exhibiting his or her best photographs. The 4-H fair is the culmination of the year and an opportunity for members to showcase their work and accomplishments. These fairs also offer the opportunity to educate the public about 4-H and offer all the chance to get involved. The 4-H Fair is a popular venue for families across the Commonwealth in the summertime.

For over 100 years, Massachusetts 4-H has been providing young people the opportunity to do that work, to work on their personal growth and development in a positive environment. Research shows that 4-H members are likely to excel in school, lead their peers and give to their communities. Massachusetts 4-H is a great place to be!
