Resistance is Futile

Springfield's Healthy City Investments has purchased the Clark County Memorial Hall.
The building, erected in 1915, was purchased for $400 thousand. Restoration is estimated at $12-15 million. Since such costs are prohibitive they are planning on demolishing the building, saving the facade and incorporating it into a new building. They might want to turn it around to face north towards the new hospital.
The Memorial Hall was home to The Springfield Symphony Orchestra for many years, hosted pop concerts, and small conventions. Most of these functions are handled at the Clark State Performing Arts Center, nowadays.
