The first Columbiana County Fair was held in Lisbon in 1845, on property on East Washington Street. In 1853 the present fair grounds in Lisbon were purchased from a man named John McClymonds. The county fair has been held there ever since. It was never held in EP. Note that the county fair began before EP was even known as EP, or was much of a community at all. For a complete history, you can visit the Columbiana County Fair website.

The article never meantions the county fair. The East Palestine fair was held in what is now the park and since the East Palestine fair was held there it was known as the fairgrounds. No one ever said it was the county fairgrounds.

To Watergrl - You're right of course. Didn't catch that after reading the other comments below. The circular half-mile track still in use at the EP park used to be a real race track, for harness racing, and there were, as I understand it, several fairs there in the course of any given year. Thus, "the fairgrounds".
