The Domes

Built in the early 80s for InnerConn Technology, a company that manufactured circuit boards for computers, as well as watches. InnerConn Tech was based out of California and had intentions of moving their company out to the middle of no where… why? There is no clear answer to that. The dome shapes of the buildings were designed in a way to keep the temperature nice during hot summer months- as it can reach up to 120 degrees here.

InnerConn was so smug about their buildings here, they formed a subsidiary company - Dome Industrial Home Builders Inc. To your surprise, the dome buildings did not catch on in the state. Not only was that a failure but so was InnerConn. In ‘83 they defaulted on a bank loan and their company went under. The Domes were never to see production or any use at all. Costing $500,000 they lie here incomplete, abandoned, and in ruins. What a waste.

The domes have been fun for everyone else though - hosting underage drinking parties, odd spooky rituals (a bonfire with wood and burn marks were left behind from a recent rendezvous), cartel drug business, aliens, and let’s not forget about the time someone dumped and burned a body here.

Great reverb in the domes - anyone want to get together and throw a secret concert out here?
