Standardbred Stable of Memories

In 1882 john McMurty built the Floral Hall on the grounds of the fair ground. The hall was originally used as an exhibition hall for floral displays.

The white brick building is approximately four stories tall surmounted by a large windowed cupola. The interior of the building is a large open space that is used for special occasions.

The 1963 the Floral Hall was renovated, and the name was changed to the Standard Stable of Memories.

Today, although not open to the public, the Standardbred Stable of Memories is the most visible building on the property of the Red Mile.
