Demolition crews will begin work this summer on the concrete footprint where the Hononegah High School Dome once stood.

The inflatable dome, which opened in 2002 as a place for school athletic activities, collapsed in a December 2015 snowstorm.  

Area voters passed a $17.8 million referendum to replace the dome with a two-story, 80,000 square foot brick-and-mortar field house. 

Hall High School District 502

Update, 4/23/13

All absentee ballots have been counted...Hall High School referendum supporters have still won. Two absentee ballots from the Hall district were added to the vote totals today: one yes and one no, so the extremely close margin stands. The measure to raise $32-million to build a new high school passed 1,717 - 1,714.
