Former Gettysburg Cyclorama Building Demolished

Friday, 16 August 2013

In March 2013 the Cyclorama building created in 1962 by the architect Richard Neutra was demolished.

The Cyclorama Building at Gettysburg was a historic modernist concrete and glass Mission 66 building dedicated by the U.S. National Park Service to serve as a Gettysburg Battlefield visitor center, to exhibit the 1883 Paul Philippoteaux Battle of Gettysburg cyclorama and other artifacts. In 2005, the Gettysburg Cyclorama was removed for restoration (reopened in the new Gettysburg Museum and Visitor Center in 2007), and the Neutra Cyclorama Building was closed to the public.
