Text of sign:


Return Day


This event draws thousands as winning and losing candidates join in celebration on the Thursday following each general election.  

Poor traveling conditions and interest in the outcome of political contests may have resulted in an extended stay when all elections 

were held here.  Creation of voting districts in 1811 required the meeting of "returns" for the county.  Proclamation of results

continues to highlight this festive occasion. Well-established by the mid-19th century, Return Day is recognized as the only event

of its kind in the nation.
