Roof Blown Off of Fairgrounds Exhibit BuildingOctober 19th, 2010 by Joe Burgess
The fairgrounds was destroyed , to a large extent, back in May, 2009, by a tornado, and this building’s roof was rebuilt and re-attached, as indicated by the “shinier” tin before the roof-line.
The Monticello Airport reported no wind gusts Monday afternoon stronger than 15 miles per hour.
When informed about the damage to the structure, many fair board member’s were in disbelief, after the recent history of fairground’s structures, being destroyed by weather and wind.
