The Nebraska State Fair at Lincoln: A Photographic Memoria

A photographic series focusing on the historic buildings of the Nebraska State Fairgrounds in Lincoln. In an unfortunate move by the Nebraska State Legislature, the State Fair will
move to Grand Island in 2010. Many of these buildings will likely be torn down. It is my intention to try to capture these magnificent spaces for all to enjoy and remember.

Industrial Arts Building: Interior

The Industrial Arts Building had not been used for roughly 10 years and is falling into disrepair. There are several parts of the building with gaping holes in the roof.

As a young 4-Her, I remember the large model railroad set that occupied the upper gallery level of this building.

This building is in extreme jeopardy. Please do your part to save this historic building! For more information, see my previous post here.

A special thanks to a kind State Fair volunteer who showed me around the interior of this fantastic building!
