• Iconic Polk County dome is demolished


    WINTER HAVEN, Fla.,None - The 48-year-old Orange Dome in Winter Haven has been demolished to make way for a new retail and residential complex.

    Built in 1964, the Orange Dome housed the Citrus Festival for 44 years. The Cleveland Indians used it as a spring training site. Several concerts also took place there and it was a hurricane shelter.

    The Ledger reports that the roof of the dome came down on Monday.

    The dome is being demolished to make way for The Landings, a $150 million mixed-use development that will include retail stores, restaurants, hotels and a new movie theater to be built at the Chain of Lakes Complex.

    It will include Starbucks, Panera Bread and Chick-fil-A.
