Correction: Christian County Agricultural Fair
In the Christian County Agricultural Fair Section that was published Sunday, it incorrectly stated in the event calendar that carnival wrist bands could be purchased for $7.00. The price for wristbands is actually $17.00 per session and they can be used on Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 5:30 to 10:00 p.m.

---

In the special fair section that ran in the Breeze-Courier on Sunday, the schedule of events incorrectly listed the Interactive Farm Exhibit's start time for Thursday the 24th. The correct time is 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., not 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. as originally printed. On Saturday the Interactive Farm Exhibit will run from 8:20 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

As Christian County and Taylorville prepare to celebrate 175 years, the Genealogical Society looks back at: The history of Greenwood and Johnson Townships
CHRISTIAN COUNTY — For many years this area was sparsely settled.  The early settlers put up their cabins on the skirts of the timber, while thousands of acres of wild prairie lay untouched.  The prairie grass could grow up to ten feet tall.  It covered huge sections of the land in mounds and when blooming looked blue. These beautiful broad acres finally began to attract the eye of immigrants and land that once couldn’t be sold for $1.25 an acre soon went to $20.00 an acre.
