JV Bailey House
This historic residence was home to greenhouse superintendents and groundskeepers from the 1920s through 2004. The house was renovated and named in honor of J.V. Bailey, founder of Bailey Nurseries and a past member of the Agricultural Society board and President of the board (1933-1934). Restored with gifts to the Foundation from the Bailey Nursery Foundation and the Gordon and Margaret Bailey Foundation, the home now provides community meeting space and year-round offices for the State Fair Foundation.

State Fair Story
"My grandfather . . . supported the State Fair with his energy and time as a member and President of the State Fair Board in the 1920s and 1930s. We continue to believe the State Fair is worthy of our support, and are pleased to be able to honor his name with our contribution."
