The Agriculture Building's grand entrance faces the fair's main intersection. Inside, the best of the state's agriculture is displayed alongside the famous Butter Cow.


[Narrator] And then, the Agriculture Building, the most formal of the fair's brick buildings.

[Thomas Leslie, Architect and Historian] It has a really overly grand entrance that faces onto the Fair's main intersection and really celebrates the fact that what is going on in there is this really important thing for the state, the best of the state's agriculture is getting displayed and shown and it is a monumental structure that really dignifies that.
