Huron couple donates $20,000 to go toward new exhibit hall at South Dakota State Fairgrounds


HURON, South Dakota — A Huron couple is donating $20,000 toward a new exhibit hall on the South Dakota State Fairgrounds in Huron.

Nels and Dorothy Olsen owned and operated a farm machinery and truck business in Huron for many years. They say they are supporting the state fair project because of the positive influence of 4-H on youth throughout the state.

Construction has started on the 48,000-square-foot hall. It will feature 30,000 square feet of exhibit space, multiple classrooms, a large kitchen for 4-H special food competitions, year-round concessions and a performance stage.

State fair officials say they have raised more than $4 million toward its goal of $4.7 million for the project.
