Agriculture Hall, now the Industrial Arts Building in Lincoln, is a distinctively shaped, trapezoidal building on the south edge of the former State Fairgrounds. Integral to the entire structure is the post-and-truss system of the interior open space, which features the same trapezoidal shape as the building. Additionally, the building represents facility growth during the State Fair's expansion period. The State Fair brought entertainment opportunities, educational enrichment, and the latest in agricultural technology to the lives of thousands of Nebraskans on an annual basis.
