This photograph shows the Mitchell Park Domes under construction. Construction of the Domes, which were designed by Milwaukee architect Donald L. Grieb, started in 1959 and was completed in 1967. Work took place in six stages, allowing the project’s $4.5 million total cost – around $40 million today – to be covered with yearly appropriations, according to the Domes’ website. The latest renovation plan for the Domes calls for a $66 million public-private partnership.
