The American Circus Corporation Two Arch Cage
On March 12, 2017, the former Cap Curtis built cage was loaded up on a trailer to be taken to an Amish wagon master who will rebuild the undercarriage, remove the large steel pieces and restore it to the original spring built suspension. This is the only wagon in Peru that was originally built in the Wagon Shop barn at the International Circus Hall of Fame. This is also referred to as the North Barn. This is another great step in helping preserve the American Circus as known in Peru, Indiana.

Work Week at the Circus Hall of Fame
What is work week all about at the International Circus Hall of Fame? For one thing, because it is NOT state controlled, you as volunteers are allowed to help in many ways. There has been cleaning up of overgrown weeds, painting of wagons and parts, scrollwork and decorations, show cases re-designed, and some good old fashioned friendship and fellowship. This is an opportunity for you to really make a difference, a little at a time. Look forward to it coming up May 1st – May 7th.
