The Plateau (sometimes called Terrace), of States was  an ideal site for the  forty or more beautiful homes, erected by the various States of the Union at the southeastern portion of the fairgrounds. . As a rule, these State buildings are merely handsome club houses for the comfort and convenience of the people from the several States, though some  buildings-  such as Alaska,  displayed  their resources.  Many of them had resturants that fairgoers could use to sample regional cusine. The figures given in each State building profile shows  cost of the construction only and did not include  furnishing  and decorating.

On Independence Day,  179,258  people visited the Fair. They were all encouraged to visit their `home' state building where they could sign a registry. Free gift souveniors and token were given out that  day.
