The Colorado State Archives places a construction date of 1918 on this structure, but this could not be confirmed. The building was constructed after the 1905 Sanborn Fire Insurance Map and is visible on photographs from 1935. A building program completed in 1908 may have included this building. The building appears to feature open sides in early, undated, photographs – much like a large gazebo or carousel structure, although no documentation could be found to support a previous carousel installation. This building has hosted many uses including hay storage (undated historic photograph), a police station (1940s), ice storage (1952) chamber of commerce (1960s) and a Mexican food pavilion (recent memory from current workers at fair). The open space in the center is ideal for small exhibits or large meetings.
