Also, reserve an entire level of the 4 story structure for the Pioneer Village Museum to house and archive artifacts and the history of Ward County. A Ward County Historical Society office could be located at the new state fair center. It's a win win for everybody and the state fair board can go fly a kite.

Pride goeth before fall. If you don't bend, eventually you break. The State Fair Board. When you think of the Good Samaritan, there is no photo of any state fair board member.

I like the headline "Pioneer Village seeks to move"... no, the fair board is seeking to have them moved. he Ward county historical society is seeking to stay where they are. And I think they should stay where they are, it adds to the ND State Fair by giving people one more thing to do at the fair.

No mention has been made of relocating the exposition and dairy barns, Jaycees Building and 4-H Building. What is to become of these activities and organizations?
