Service Building

Designed by Burns and Burns, these architects were first known for their traditional designs, but by the ‘50s, they had switched to Modernism. The lower level functioned as storage space, while the upper floors house administrative offices with banks of windows overlooking the Fair Grounds. The interior is supported by glue-lam arches, a new technology of the post-war years.
