Southwest Pavilion (Senior Citizen's Building)

This building was originally constructed by the WPA in 1936 as an exhibition hall. From this area behind the Home and Family Arts Building you can see the upper floor living quarters for seasonal fair workers. The adjacent open parking lot used to house the DNR's wooden display buildings from 1915-1950.
