Nimisilla Park was established in 1894. Prior to its
founding, the site was the location of the county
fair from 1859 to 1893. Throughout its history,
Nimisilla Park hosted horse races, live music, soldier
reunions, and a zoo, among other events. Prominent
political figures, such as Rutherford B. Hayes.
James A. Garfield, William McKinley, and Eugene V.
Debs, made speeches at the park. In 1918, Debs
delivered a famous anti-war speech for which he was
arrested and jailed. As of 2016, the park continues
to serve as a gathering place for the community.
