Meet Lincoln, Uncle Sam
Town Hall, located in the Fiddlers Grove area of the Ag Center grounds, is a great place to visit. Come by and see the folks from the three Chambers of Commerce. You will also see Uncle Sam (at left, Phillip Warren, shown with Helen McPeak) there to shake your hand and have your picture taken with him. You can also try out the new voting machine. Fiddlers Grove is also present telling the history of Wilson County and the Grove as well as having two showcases filled with history and with items made in Wilson County. This year, they have a great display of items from Charlie Daniels. You can try your hand at building a log cabin with Lincoln Logs (above) that have been donated by K’Nex Industries.
