The Pontiac Silverdome has been a ghostly site for some years now. Back when the Lions moved to Ford Field in 2002, the stadium was still used for other events here and there. But as the economy of Pontiac seized up, no one wanted a piece of the outdated building, and it eventually sold for just $583,000 in 2009.
Since then, the edifice has been a wasteland. Though it held a few more events in 2010, they eventually decided to auction off pieces of the building, giving the stadium the final death blow.
In 2013, a snow storm shredded the building's signature inflated roof, leaving haunting images of a broken home. A few years later the roof finally gave way, leaving the innards scattered with shredded pieces of the roof. Since then, a handful of people have managed to break into the facility to take pictures of the depressing scene. Last year, a BMX rider danced atop the corpse of a stadium.
The Silverdome is scheduled to be mercifully demolished in the spring later this year, but Ken Fager, a photographer and sadly a Packers fan, managed to get inside and take photos of the stadium in its final days. Below are a few of the most shocking photos, but you can view the entire album here. (via reddit)
