Arizona, eight years before statehood, was the smallest of the State and Territorial buildings.  The humble  Spanish Mission style one-story building contained four front horseshoe-shaped arches, and inside- three rooms. It covered an area 26 by 44 feet and cost 4,172 dollars.

A small garden of  giant cactus and other succulents (not pictured above  because of the season), was displayed at the buildings front.

The Arizona building housed a small but interesting collection of artifacts from various cliff dwellers and tribes of the  region.

Some of the painting frames in the buildings interior were made out
of cactus wood.

Arizona's  more elaborate displays were housed in the Palace of Horticulture, the Palace of Mines and Metallurgy, and  Palace of Education.


















The amount of money placed at the disposition of the Arizona Board of Managers by the Legislature for Exposition work was 30,000 dollars.

In the Horticultural Building there were maintained throughout the Fair from 130 to 160 plates on the table, which held the following: Valencia late oranges, Washington navel oranges, Mediterranean sweets, lemons, limes, grape fruit, citronella, tangarines, grapes, plums, quinces, apricots, plum grabites, pears, cantaloupes, melons, olives, olive oil, pickled olives, etc.

The Agricultural Building showed the various products of the soil of the territory. Wheat, oats, barley, corn, Kaffir corn, sorghum, millet, alfalfa seed, alfalfa, hay, vegetables, olives, olive oil, preserved fruits, dates, etc., were displayed.

The educational exhibit in the Palace of Education and Social Economy Building
represented the school work of the  territory from the kindergarten to
the academic grade, showing the educational system and the progress made
in Arizona.
