The octagonal exhibition hall was built in 1921. Onaga was a thriving railroad town and the county fair was one of the most important social events of the year. When this unique structure is restored, it will contain exhibits to show our increasingly urban population what the fair meant to the farmers, ranchers, and their families. This nomination was prepared by Dr. Deanna Fairbanks and the Friends of the Fair Pavilion.
