Permeating the atmosphere

under the giant oak trees at the Tippecanoe County Fairgrounds,
was a pleasant aroma of brewing coffee, oily steam, saw-dust, corn
meal, fresh apples, and soft coal smoke. This made the older
generation of spectators look, linger and reminisce sweet memories

The Illiana Steam & Hobby Club was founded on April 29,1956.
The annual Home Hospital Fair is ten years old and attracts throngs
of visitors.
