The Pontiac Silver Dome

The Pontiac silver Dome was built in 1975 at a cost of 55 million dollars.
Over the years it has hosted a Superbowl numerous Detroit Lions thanksgiving day games. It held 93,000 when Pope John Paul II Visited and almost as many when Hulk Hogan body slammed Andre the Giant and Wrestle Mania III.

With all that history you would think it would have been a valuable asset. It wasn't.
The dome and the surrounding property sold at auction in November for $583,000(not a misprint).

Here it is on wikipedia
