Doomed Metrodome Chock Full Of History

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Minnesota’s puffy-topped Metrodome that has hosted monster truck rallies, the Final Four and the Super Bowl will soon hold its final event. Ahead of its demolition, historians and others are sizing up what should be saved.

The Metrodome will be razed to make way for the new Vikings stadium. The state Historical Society is among those scoping out items, including a portion of the roof.

The Dome was one of the first to have a roof sustained through pressurized air.

Sports fans have contacted the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority to ask for features, though items might be sold through a surplus property auction process.

It’s unclear whether seats can be salvaged because they aren’t self-supporting and have only one arm-rest each.
