McLean County Fairgrounds Old East Side Location, Undated

Aerial view of Normal, undated.

This site, Illinois Route 9 just east of what would become Veterans Parkway, served as home for the McLean County Fair from 1955 to 1996. This aerial view is looking west-northwest. If you’re having trouble orientating yourself, “A” is Bloomington Country Club; “B” the Route 66 Beltline (now Veterans Parkway); and “C” Route 9.
Who has memories of attending, showing, or judging at these fairgrounds?
