The Richards Building

Does your organization need a space for an event that's convenient and well-known? A space that's available any month you choose? Perhaps your family needs a place for a reunion, or a landmark birthday? The Richards Building Renovation Committee is working to provide such a venue at the Sussex County Fairgrounds by upgrading the "big blue building" to accommodate events year round.

 

The Richards Building is the 40-year-old building which houses so many exhibits during the Fair. The only building in existence when the Fair came to Plains Road, the Richards Building is used heavily throughout the year as well as Fair week by many groups.
