The agricultural societies' delegates of Haywood, Fayette, Shelby, and Madison met to set up the governing board of the society in Tennessee. This movement for agricultural initiation influenced the role of the government in helping the farmer's of Tennessee. The creation of fairgrounds shows the impact of agricultural groups. Governor Johnson persuaded the legislature to purchase land to be used as fairgrounds for agricultural purposes so that farmers could go and sell their goods. The legislature authorized an issuance of 30,000 in state bonds for the land and construction of buildings. This aided the economy of the state, showing the agricultural influence. This delegation also determined the next Division Fair for Western Tennessee.
