Historical Note

The Michigan State Agricultural Society was organized in Lansing on March 17, 1849. Its purpose was to provide Michigan farmers the information to build the best farms.

The society went on to manage the Michigan State Agricultural College. This responsibility was later turned over to a newly created State Board of Agriculture.

The society also oversaw the Michigan State Fair.
