Booklet commemorates Ramsey County Fair’s 100-year milestone


Jim Lindner

Did you know the Ramsey County Fair was canceled in 1946 due to a polio outbreak that infected one out of every 2,649 residents in St. Paul?

In his 36-page booklet, “Down Through the Years,” Lindner takes readers on a journey of the fair’s history, starting with its founding in 1913 in White Bear Lake to its present-day location in Maplewood.
