This residence was home to greenhouse superintendents and groundskeepers from the 1920s to 2004. It was also the fair-time home for State Agricultural Society board members from the 1920s through 1969. On Aug. 27, 2006, the property was named in honor of J.V. Bailey, founder of Bailey Nurseries. Mr. Bailey served the Minnesota State Fair as superintendent of horticulture (1912 -1932), member of the Agricultural Society board and President of the board (1933 -1934). Restored with gifts to the Minnesota State Fair Foundation from Bailey Nursery Foundation and the Gordon and Margaret Bailey Foundation, the property now provides community meeting space and offices for the Minnesota State Fair Foundation.
