A 9-foot high by 55-feet long multi-sheet full color paper lithograph circus advertising the Great Anglo-American Circus exhibiting in Durand on Monday, August 17, 1885 was uncovered during our special events room expansion.   This is believed to be the only surviving billboard for the Great Anglo-American Circus and Menagerie.  In honor of Miles Orton (owner and manager of the circus), our special events room has been named the “Orton Room”
