Montana’s Big Timber Pioneer newspaper reported in 1937:
“The Richland county fairgrounds are being completely remodeled for the coming Richland county fair and according to manager Jack Suckstorff about 40 men are now being employed in this work which is a WPA project. The grandstand is the most noticeable of the changes, it is being enlarged to scat approximately 3,000 people whereas its former capacity was around 1,500. The midway is being enlarged and seeded. It is planned to make this year’s fair the greatest in history. The fair opening is on Labor day.”
