HURON, S.D. (AP) - The state’s 4-H participants will soon have a brand new home at the South Dakota State Fairgrounds in Huron.

State and local officials gathered Wednesday for a groundbreaking event for the Nordby Exhibit Hall for 4-H, Youth and Community.

The 48,000-square-foot hall will feature multiple classrooms, a large kitchen for 4-H special food competitions and a performance stage.

State Agriculture Secretary Lucas Lentch tells KOKK-AM that construction is expected to start this summer. The South Dakota State Fair Foundation raised about $3.9 million of the $4.7 million goal to construct the facility.

The hall is being named after Huron philanthropist Earl Nordby, who made his money in the soft-drink bottling industry.

The old Clover Hall that was built in the 1950s was demolished to make way for the new building.
