The small pewter winner's cup shown Saturday night at the ceremonies marking the start of a horse caravan from Fairfield to Des Moines made Iowa State Fair officials drool.
Jessie Hinsahw [sic] won the trophy in 1854, when the first fair was held in the Jefferson County community. The award for best draft horse colt. Hinshaw's 2-year-old named Norman won it.
The fair would bounce around other parts of the state, including Burlington and Keokuk, before the Legislature created a permanent home in Des Moines.
The trophy has been passed down through generations. The 150-year-old piece stands about 4 inches tall and is 3 inches in diameter. It now is in the hands of Caroline Hinshaw McNeil of Perry, who is in her late 60s. The family heirloom is rare, the state fair's museum doesn't have anything from the fair's first year.
"It's the only thing they have found from the first state fair," said Korwin Hinshaw of Fairfield, who is the great-great-grandson of Jessie.
