“The Dome”

Fans of Eagle River and its hockey tradition are affectionate about “The Dome”, and its rich history. The Dome needs your help.  When construction started on the stadium in 1925, this building was thought to live forever. The youth of our communities would always have a place to skate, unwind, compete and learn the love of skating and the game of hockey. 

The Dome is the last one standing of its kind in the world, created by architect, Max Hanisch Sr.  He built three of these Dome’s, and Eagle River is proud to have the only remaining one. As one of the oldest rinks in the country, this historical building needs your help.  Mother Nature and the hands of time have weathered the Dome, and it is in need of major repair.  The Eagle River Recreational Association (ERRA), a non-profit organization, has launched a capital fund raising campaign to renovate and repair the Dome so it can last another 90 years. 

Anyone that has set foot in this place can feel the tradition, sense of wonderment, engineering, and ingenuity that went into the architecture of this magnificent stadium.  The lamella design is like no other and one can stare for hours at the interweaving structure of wood.  You can only imagine the time, manpower, and community spirit that must have poured through the veins of the locals that built it.

Please help and be a part of saving a piece of hockey history.

This arena is one of my fondest memories growing up! It should be there for all future generations to learn and enjoy at!

Not playing hockey will be my biggest regret in life, especially growing up in Eagle River. I’d want my kids to have the chance to play here some day.

It really should be considered a National Historic Landmark. Hopefully the money can be raised to save it.

This gem of a hockey arenas is one of a kind and old. Roof has been repaired but there puppies need a overhaul. It's expensive and I'm hoping for a snowball effect with my donation. I know for birthdays there are more none cause to be had out there but this arenas was Dakota's first story when she started her big join. I would hate to see this community lose such a great piece of history. So if you feel so inclined to help out in honour of my special day I would appreciate it. Anybody know any one in the hockey industry that would have interest in helping out would be cool. Pretty sure corporate sponsorship could really go along way to getting this done. Thanks and GO PREDS!
