Near this site the Lindemann Brothers Circus gave its first performance in 1918. Well established by 1925, the Lindemanns adopted the name Seils-Sterling and their circus became one of the country's greatest motorized shows. In 1937 its 29-week itinerary included stops in 10 states, but the depression of the 1930's led to the end of Seils-Sterling's travels. The final performance was in Iron Mountain, Michigan, July 4, 1938.

In 1965 the Lindemann brothers — Bill, Al and Pete — were enshrined in the Circus Hall of Fame at Sarasota, Florida.
