Touring the history of the fair


Built in 1931, the grandstands have seen a lot of good entertainment over the years.

DNR’s division of historic preservation and archaeology takes patrons on a tour of the historic buildings and structures of the state fair.

Not historical at all, but still fun to look at.

Taking the fair trolly around the grounds, I went along for the ride as the tour guide spits out nuggets of information every time we pass  a building. Including a couple of knee-slappers. How did the pig get to the hospital, by hambulance.

Included on the tour was our own DNR building. In the last few years the addition of the amphitheater and Fishin’ Pond have been fantastic for expanding the experience of everyone that comes stops in.
