Colorado did not represent an official building, instead it used its appropriations for ample exhibits in the Palace of Mines and Metallurgy, the Palace of Agriculture (an irrigation display), and in the Forestry, Fish and Game exhibition. Many fish from Colorado streams were displayed in aquariums and tanks.
The value of the mining exhibit placed by the State of Colorado on exhibition in St. Louis was 500,000 dollars; the value of the Agricultural exhibit, 10,000 dollars; Horticultural exhibit, 8,000 dollars; Educational exhibit, 15,000 dollars; Forestry, Fish, and Game exhibit, 7,500 dollars.
