Washtenaw County Fairgrounds

Washtenaw County Fairgrounds was the first home field for the University of Michigan Wolverines football team. The Wolverines played their home games at the Fairgrounds from 1883 to 1884 and again from 1886 to 1892. The first intercollegiate football game played at the Fairgrounds was a May 12, 1883, game between Michigan and the Detroit Independents team. The game was part of a "Field Day" with events that included a ten-mile walk, wrestling and a "hop-skip-and jump" competition.
