Hamilton County Fairgrounds project nears completion

Hamilton County Fairgrounds project nears completion



The preservation of the historic grandstand on the Hamilton County Fairgrounds is nearly complete, according to Hamilton County Fair director Jamie Griffith.

Midwest Paint should finish its part of the task this week, she said. It cost $73,600 to paint the iconic wooden structure.

The total cost of the restoration project, including repairs, is $100,000, she said.

The Hamilton County Fair Board received a $10,000 Enhance Hamilton County grant for the Grandstand Preservation Project.

The Hamilton County Speedway Racing Association (HCSRA) donated $15,000. Another $5,000 was donated by Seneca Foundry.

Opening in July 1910, the Karl Chevrolet Hamilton County Speedway is the oldest speedway in the state of Iowa. In 1938, work began on the current location at the Hamilton County Fairgrounds. The semi-banked half-mile dirt track was completed in the spring of 1939, and the first races were held on the track in September of that year.

The racetrack is located off US 20 at exit 140, then 1.2 miles north, then 0.5 mile east on Bank St., then 0.4 mile south to 1200 Bluff St, Webster City, IA 50595 (at the Hamilton County Fairgrounds).
