Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

FROM MIKE NAUGHTON: REMEMBERING THE TRENTON FAIRGROUNDS

How many of you parked here beside the old elephant barn between East coast dates.

From The New York Times
The Region; Jersey Fairgrounds Sold to Investor
Published: Wednesday, June 24, 1981

• TRENTON (UPI) - The 130-acre site that has served as New Jersey's state fairgrounds since the 19th century has been sold to a realestate investor.
The property, off Route 33 in Hamilton Township, had been owned by the George Hamid family for almost 50 years. It was purchased by Max Zaitz, an investor and the owner of a cattle farm in Hightstown.
James Coley, an attorney for George Hamid Jr., said Mr. Zaitz had paid more than $750,000 for the land. Plans for the property were not disclosed, but Mr. Coley said that the annual state fair would be held there in September.

We did,about a million times.When we were kids we had a lot of fun in those barns. Al Vidbel didn't want us in there and sometimes he would get on the roof with a good supply of perfectly formed elephant turds and wait until we came out and bombard us,laughing the whole time. And we still loved him. Joanne
