Ag- Grange: Growing Strong

The Agricultural Grange Building represents an annual commitment to the primary mission for which the Erie County Agricultural Society was established in 1820. Each year, the bounty of the land and the efforts of those who cultivate its soil are celebrated in this building built in 1964. Located in Slade Park, the structure was said to be one of the finest such fair exhibit buildings in the United States at the time of construction. In 1989 a mural celebrating the Fair’s 150th Anniversary, painted by the late Bill Browing of the States Shows, was erected inside.
