George Dahl, chief architect for the 1926 Texas Centennial Exposition, consolidated the livestock and agricultural facilities of the exposition into an area north of the Cotton Bowl.  While not as grand as the Esplanade, the plan is axial, with matching porticos of the Food and Fiber Building and the Embarcadero Building flanking the main boulevard.  Just as in other areas of the Exposition, the architectural plan included large-scale murals, now restored to their original glory.

Join restoration architect and Fair Park expert Nancy McCoy for a tour of the Agrarian District as a part of the ongoing DCFA Fair Park Spotlight Series.  The tour is free and open to the public and will begin at the steps of the Hall of State.  To register, e-mail info@DallasCFA.com and include "Agrarian District" in the subject line.
