New Exhibit Opens Soon: Horse Racing and the Big Badger Fair

The Mining & Rollo Jamison Museums are proud to announce a new exhibit focusing on the Big Badger Fair opening May 1, 2017. Platteville’s Big Badger Fair was the highlight of the summer during the first half of the 20th century, and the highlight of the fair was its program of horse races. This exhibit will feature wooden-wheeled sulkies, fair banners, photographs, fancywork, and more. Get ready to come to the fair!
