The main office building for the American Circus Corporation was built at the Peru, Indiana winter quarters in 1922.
      Owners, Ed ballard, Bert Bowers and Jerry Mugivan their Superintendents and staff sent out thousands of letters each year to book locations, order advertising, negotiate railroad contracts, performers contracts and day to day supplies. In addition to keeping as many as five circuses on the road, they operated a 600 acre farm surrounding the winter quarters that supplied much of the hay, wheat, corn and grain used for the animals.
      After the winter quarters was sold in 1944, this building was used as asmall home for several years. By the 1970s, it was being used as a meat shop and carriage house. It has then used as a house again in the 1980s and 1990s.
       The restoration will require an all new roof, siding, doors and windows as well as transforming the interior back to the original look.
       This is a designated National Historic Landmark along with the other remaining buildings of the American Circus Corporation.

We have reduced the amount to just cover the roof repairs as that is the most important step at first. We would ideally like to get this done yet this fall. Please share this with your friends and neighbors.
