Charlotte Fairgrounds

Object Year: 
B. H. Kress

The Charlotte Fairgrounds as it appeared in 1909.  The Charlotte Consolidated Construction Company (the 4 C's) headed by Edward Dilworth Latta, leased a large track of land to the Mecklenburg Fair Association in 1902. The latter opened a fair in September of that year.  The fairgrounds were located on the south side of East Boulevard about where Park Road and Dilworth Road West are today. The ten-year lease was not renewed in 1911 as Latta planned to expand the park in Dilworth and open a larger park called Lakewood just west of Charlotte. The buildings and the pavilion were dismantled.
