Fair Park was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1986 because of its exceptional significance in American history.
This significance is derived from its 105-year association with the State Fair of Texas and as the site of the 1936 Texas Centennial Exposition. While the location of Fair Park dates back to the original 1886 fairgrounds, many of the existing buildings and public spaces were constructed for the 1936 Centennial.
Fair Park, a National Historic Landmark, is home to an extraordinary collection of 1930s Art Deco art and architecture. From the mysterious Woofus statue to the beautiful restored murals and gold-leafed eagle atop the Tower Building, the treasures of the past are an awe-inspiring treat for visitors of today.
