Old Olympia

This was the interior of the Original Olympia Stadium.  About 15,000 seats, with an oval seating bowl.  The arena had been expanded in the mid 60's and was well maintained up to its closing.  It may have lived a longer life if not for the deterioration of the neighborhood along Grand River Avenue northwest of downtown.  The building sat abandoned from 1980 to 1986 until it was torn down.
