DES MOINES, IA (08/13/2012)(readMedia)-- Iowans take a trip through history with the Heritage Exhibits contest judged prior to the start of the 2012 Iowa State Fair.

Limited to genuine artifacts that are at least 50 years old, entries in the Heritage Exhibits division are evaluated on the authenticity and condition of the artifact.

The historical exhibits included colored or opaque glass, pottery, clear glass, china, toys, jewelry, paper, dry goods, furnishings, animal equipment, metals, small item collections, small glass item collections, primitives, large item collections and a special division.

Fairgoers can catch a glimpse of yesteryear by visiting the historical artifacts on display every day of the Fair from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. in Pioneer Hall.
