Memorial Hall Site to be Home for New Skating Rink

The site of Springfield's Veterans Memorial Hall (b. 1915) will be the future home of an ice rink. The building will be demolished, there are plans to save and reuse the façade. Another site, The Metallic Casket Building, was rejected because a new building (big soulless box) was preferable to refitting an existing building.
