The first Michigan State Fair was held in Detroit in 1849, just twelve years after Michigan officially became a state. At the time, it was customary for the State Fair to be held in a different Michigan city every year. By 1905, Detroit became the permanent location of the Michigan State Fair; and the size of the Fairgrounds grew every year until it reached its present size of 164 acres by 1921. The growth and development of the Michigan State Fair, and its ownership transfer to the Michigan Department of Agriculture was completed under the direction of Joseph L. Hudson of Hudson's Department Store and the Hudson Motor Company. (Oh, we really miss Hudson's Department Store!)
