Plans for a Shreveport museum’s fundraiser will rekindle a rich part of the city’s history: the Mighty Haag Circus.
The Algur Meadows Museum of Art benefit is called
Cirque de Shreve. The affair will be held on the grounds of the winter home of a circus that traveled the countryside in the U.S. and Canada for 40 years ending its run in 1938.
Benefit co-organizer Sherry Kerr’s landmark home, Pine Wold Manor, sits on the property that once belonged to circus owner, banker and real estate mogul Ernest Haag.
