Mayor Hudnut Inside Hoosier Dome During Construction, c. November 1984

Construction on the Dome began in April 1982. The project ultimately cost approximately $80 million, financed through private and public means, including donations from the Lilly Endowment and Krannert Charitable Trust, private investments, a one percent tax on sales in Marion County restaurants and bars, and sales of revenue bonds. The sales tax covered debt on the bonds.
