Once the Largest Stadium in the NFL, the Pontiac Silverdome Lies in Ruins

The home of the Detroit Lions between 1975-2001, the Pontiac, Mich. venue also hosted Super Bowl XVI, Wrestlemania III and the first indoor match in FIFA World Cup history. Built for $55.7 million forty years ago (and sold for just $583,000 in 2009) the stadium has fallen on hard times.

Local residents are frustrated the Canadian ownership group hasn't done anything with the property — or the 127-acre site it sits on — since acquiring it in an auction. Harsh weather over two years ago helped take out the canvas fabric roof that once covered the stadium. As for what's next for the location of Joe Montana's first Super Bowl victory, an announcement is expected later this year.

It's so sad how much of Detroit is abandoned. It's like a ghost town.
