The Civic comes down
Published 09/07/2010, Grand Forks Herald
The Civic Auditorium, built in 1957, is razed to make way for apartment complex
The façade is still intact, but, on the inside, Grand Forks’ Civic Auditorium is mostly rubble after construction crews sent backhoes and bulldozers into its guts Tuesday. By the end of the week, there will be nothing left standing as workers head into the basement to pull out the concrete.
