The Cole Bros. Circus of the Stars appears much as it did when founded in 1884 by William Washington Cole. According to the circus' website, Cole Bros. has survived through the death of William Cole, several changes in ownership, the Great Depression and the modernization of circus equipment to still deliver traditional, family-centered circus entertainment.
