1931: THE NEW JERSEY STATE FAIR 1925 SEASON
We lost a local treasure here in Hamilton Township when "the Fair" closed down shop and moved to South Jersey. National television coverage of the many auto races, thousands of attendees, and other fabulous features pulled out of town and left us. Of course, today the Grounds For Sculpture has taken over a large part of the land, along with UPS and a few housing developments. But in its golden years from 1888 until the 1960's, Hamilton Township and the city of Trenton had a jewel that was largely unappreciated.
