Hailey Rodeo Grounds Could Soon Have a New Name


By Aimee Burnett

Hailey, Idaho (KMVT-TV) The City of Hailey is looking to bring back an old name for the new and improved rodeo grounds.

Back in 1913, German born Hailey resident Leopold Werthheimer willed to the City of Hailey a one thousand dollar donation with the sole wish of improving the then City of Hailey Park, which is now the location of the new rodeo grounds.

At Monday's city council meeting, representatives from the Historic Preservation Commission, along with the council, officially started the process of possibly re–naming the Hailey Rodeo grounds back to Wethheimer Park.

The council will meet again in a few weeks and will give the public a chance to voice their concerns or opinions on what the park should be named.
