Ghost Signs in Baraboo, Wisconsin

Baraboo, Wisconsin, was the headquarters and winter home of the famous Ringling Brothers circus.

The Ringling Brothers held their first circus in 1884. In 1919 they merged with the Barnum & Bailey Circus and moved their winter headquarters to Connecticut.

The old grounds and buildings are now a living museum and some of the original hand-painted signs are still visible.
