The Heart O’ Texas Fair Complex is not only the center of the annual Heart O’ Texas Fair & Rodeo, but is also utilized throughout the year for numerous events such as industrial expositions, home shows, automobile shows, religious occasions, ice shows, circuses, and many other elaborate attractions. The Complex was constructed after voters of the county had authorized a bond issue of $1,200,000 in the early 1950s. Despite public criticism that might be directed toward the board and individual members, it was the board’s unanimous decision to build portions of the entire plant that the available money would permit. The last of five contracts was signed on January 9, 1952, and construction of the Coliseum began soon afterward. The Coliseum, livestock barn, ticket booths, and several small buildings were constructed, paving was done and fencing enclosed the grounds. In the Spring of 1953, the Coliseum was completed and on April 11th, the formal opening was held. All facilities and grounds of the Fair Complex underwent renovations and/or reconstruction throughout out the years of 2000 to 2005. The Complex now covers 50 acres of land containing modernized facilities, 700 stalls, 250 RV hook-ups and parking areas able to accommodate over 3800 vehicles. It’s facilities consist of the Heart O’ Texas Coliseum and Back Porch Club, Dodge Show Pavilion, General Exhibits Building, Fine Arts Building, and the recently constructed Stall Barn.
