A pavillion commemorates William Reid who was the treasurer of the Tenterfield Show Society for 20 years, 1894 -1913, and president for nine years 1914-1922.

At the monthly meeting of Tenterfield P.A. and M. Society the revised schedule for the 1939 show was approved. Consideration was given to the question of ground improvement, and it was decided to spend a further sum of £27 to complete the entrance, by adding new gates to the A. M. White Memorial and renovating the Walker Memorial entrance. It was decided to dedicate the show pavilion, the William Reid Memorial, and to invite Mr. Bruxner, M.L.A., to unveil the tablet.
