Demolition Imminent

Demolition plans are in place for Springfield's Veteran's Memorial Hall. The National Trail Parks and Recreation District expects to be building a $5.5 million ice skating rink in early 2011. Plans for reusing the facade are not as clear as they were some months ago. It's disassembly is expected to take 1 month.
Meanwhile ex-tenants, the Springfield Symphony Orchestra, will be kicking off a new season Saturday featuring the works of Wagner, Schumann, and Tchaikovsky.
