About This Web Site

Author posing in Hall of State This Web site is provided as a free public service by a private citizen who has no official connection with the City of Dallas Parks & Recreation Department or any other organization associated with, or located at, Fair Park. The site has only two purposes: to educate and to entertain. Its emphasis is on the history and architectural development of the park. It is not intended to be a history of the State Fair of Texas (although fair and park are so inextricably linked it is difficult to mention one without mentioning the other). For those who are especially interested in the history of the Fair, The Great State Fair of Texas, a book written by State Fair publicist Nancy Wiley and published in 1986, is highly recommended.

All the information on this site was obtained from a variety of sources. The author cannot assume any responsibility for any incorrect or outdated information contained herein.
