the kelly-miller circus comes to olean
- 2005 -

Trucked-in at 6:00am and set up by noon, the big top ready for
the circus crowds and an afternoon to remember.  The Home
Depot in the Wal Mart Plaza hosted the event. By 6:00pm the
show was over and the BIG TOP came down, heading for
another town. The sights, the smells, the sounds combined to
bring back childhood memories of the 1950's CLYDE BEATTY
CIRCUS then located on the Jaekel property next to current
location of the Olean General Hospital Heliport off Main St.
PICTURED BELOW IS THE CLYDE BEATTY CIRCUS - 1952
The circus set up most summers at the Jaekel Horse Stable
Property across from Boardmanville Elementary School in 1950's
