Northeastern Wisconsin's Valley Fair Center

"The first weather-protected shopping center in the nation", so proclaimed the Appleton Post-Crescent, on March 9, 1955. VALLEY FAIR CENTER holds the distinction of being America's first community-class, fully-enclosed shopping mall. SOUTHDALE CENTER, outside Minneapolis, would become the nation's first regional-class, fully-enclosed mall in October 1956.
