The Young County Arena, known as the “barn of dreams” by youth and parents, was a huge community project. Construction began in 2000 and was managed by Young County and the Young County Parks Board. In 2004, the City of Graham contracted with Young County to manage the facility.
Due to careful budgeting and planning, the facility has been constructed in phases. The initial phase was the construction of the main covered arena. In 2006, the outdoor arena and stall area was added. The parking lot and landscaping beds were completed in 2007. Thanks to a supportive community and thoughtful foresight and planning, the Young County Arena continues to grow and enhance year after year.
