Hara Arena Now Officially a Pile of Rubble

Hara Arena ... after closing but before demolition.

The former home of the Dayton Hamvention has been demolished to make way for redevelopment. The ARRL Letter reported in early May that piles of rubble are now all that is left of Hara Arena, which was home to Hamvention from 1964 until it closed in 2016. 

The buildings were severely damaged by a tornado in 2019 and then considered beyond repair. A YouTube video of the current arena site may be viewed at <https://tinyurl.com/f8ctxusy>.
