Dutch Belted cattle (Lakenvelder) on display before the grandstand at the Caribou Fair.

Established in 1913, the Caribou Fair Grounds and Trotting Park provided the area with facilities for an annual agricultural fair. The Grandstand was torn down in 1947.

In 1922 Olof O. Nylander assembled a display of photographs, maps and charts of the Maine Swedish Colony which he displayed at the three hundredth anniversary of the founding of Gothenburg, Sweden. This photograph is from samlat 18.
