"During the 1960’s, Indian Lake Playland Amusement Park brought the arches in by railroad with plans to eventually erect them at the park. However, the plans never came to fruition leaving the arches sit in the weeds for over twenty years. Over the years the arches fell into the hands of a restaurant owner in Russell’s Point; and there they continued to sit.
In 1990, Jim Duff, owner of Duff Quarry bought the structures from Anthony Guisliano, the owner at Pier 33, a restaurant in Russell’s Point. Finally in 1991 the arches were erected in front of the Duff Quarry headquarters in Huntsville, Ohio."

I wonder if any of the others listed here might know how and from whom they were originally purchased from the fair. Was General Foods possibly one of the vendors/exhibitors who didn't want to deal with removing or selling the arches, and just left them for the fair association to deal with? It could be possible that someone involved with the Indian Lake Amusement Park (if they can be found) may know what the original history was and may lead to finding some of the six missing arches.

That's not to say there wasn't perhaps some special arrangement with the Fair corporation, wherein the Fair would agree to sell/dispose of the arches.
