#TBT – Today we are throwing back to 1946, and a photograph of the “Waterfall”. Built in the late 1930’s on the North Carolina State Fairgrounds, the wooden structure was a state fair landmark. “Meet Me at the Waterfall” was a common phrase – where friends met up and lost children reconnected with their parents. The structure deteriorated and was demolished in the 1970’s. In 1999, a new waterfall tower was opened, and is known as the Helen Kirk Graham Waterfall. All the money thrown into the waterfall is donated to the Eastern Chapter of the North Carolina Alzheimer’s Association. The North Carolina State Fair opens today in Raleigh. Happy Thursday!
