Ye Old Mill
The end of the State Fair marks the start of a big celebration for one of its most popular attractions. The Ye Old Mill was built in 1913, but rides didn’t start until 1915. That makes next year its centennial celebration.
Friday was our last 4 p.m. show at the Great Minnesota Get-Together, and we brought in Dorset’s world-famous 4-year-old mayor to the ‘CCO booth.
From deep-fried food to riveting rides and cattle contests to awe-inspiring art — the State Fair is part of Minnesota’s homegrown heritage and it’s chock-full of nostalgia and traditions of a time passed.
