T he first floor of the historic log cabin behind the President’s Hall at the Fairgrounds is now graffiti-free owing to the work of the Log Cabin Project Committee.

One down, one to go. Upstairs a torn heart is imprinted in one room with white paint. And most of the rest of the wall space is covered in illegible writings in different colors.
