$2.2 million agriculture building opens in Central City
Wednesday, April 19, 2017
CENTRAL CITY, Neb. — It’s been a long time coming, but the new Merrick County Youth and Agriculture Education Center in Central City is open for business.
A ribbon cutting was held Thursday night for the $2.2 million facility on the Merrick County Fairgrounds.
The old agriculture building at the fairgrounds was fading, and it was obvious a new facility was needed, said Tammy Stuhr, 4-H Extension educator and unit leader for Merrick County.
“The current building just needed too many repairs, and it wasn’t worth the money to fix,” she said. “The board told me to come up with my dream facility, and here it is three years later.”
