Little Levels Heritage Fair

June 30, 2014 |

The 17th Annual Little Levels Heritage Fair was held this past weekend at the historic Pearl S. Buck Birthplace in Hillsboro in Pocahontas County.  Events included music, an old fashioned barbecue pig roast, arts and crafts vendors, and parades through town. The fair also celebrated Pearl S. Buck’s birthday, as well as the 100th anniversary of the Pocahontas Horse Show. The Pocahontas County Horse Show was an annual three-day event held in Hillsboro, which was known as Academy at the time. It ran in 1913, 1914, and 1915 and was a horse exhibition that included different horse races and showing events, as well as other agricultural exhibits and music.
