Borger Aluminum Dome

Request Reservation
Borger and Hutchinson County were experiencing an economic boom during the post war years and the community began pushing for an event center.  Following the failure of a $425,000 bond election for the construction civic center, Borger Mayor L.D. Patton and Chamber of Commerce Manager Dave Moore saw a commercial on TV for a Kaiser Aluminum Dome.  The duo felt the Dome could be a cheaper alternative to the failed civic center.

After a petition of 707 signatures was submitted to the Hutchinson County Commissioners Court, the Court called for a Bond Election on July 2, 1957. The vote passed with 598 votes for and 378 against. The opponents of the project blamed the record high temperature of 100 (remember, there was no air conditioning in 1957) that date for low voter turnout.

Construction finished later that year and the Hutchinson County Dome became the 1st Kaiser Aluminum Dome in the continental United States.  Following the 1999 demolition of Kaiser's first dome in Hawaii, the Hutchinson County Dome remains the oldest remaining Kaiser Dome. 

Ownership of the Dome was transferred to the City of Borger from Hutchinson County in 2018.  Identified as a strategic pillar by the Borger City Council, the City of Borger has begun initial planning for a complete renovation and expansion of the Aluminum Dome Facility.

The Dome consists of a little of 16,000 square feet of clear space and can accommodate up to 2,500 people depending on the configuration.
