1903

— Architects: Thomas Bast · Contractors: Heckert & Ricketts, John Colaflower & Dean Brothers —

The Varied Industries Building was originally called the Horticulture Building, one of the most elaborate of the 1903 exposition halls.
Early Program Books and Premium Lists identify this as the Horticulture Building, though postcards from the early twentieth century call it the Agriculture Building. It became the Varied Industries Building after World War I.
Rounded domes and parapets add to the Moorish look of the building.
It is one of the three oldest buildings on the fairgrounds.
