Mountain Park Pavilion Collapses

The last remaining structure from the original Mountain Park in Holyoke, Mass. collapsed recently. The pavilion was originally built over the foundation of the Stardust ballroom and Tap Room that was leveled by a gas explosion in the early 70s. New owner Eric Suher recently moved the pavilion to make room for a stage area for his new concert venue.

I discovered this today as I snowshoed around the parameter of the park. I couldn't help but wonder if the movement of the pavilion compromised its structural integrity. It is unknown if anyone was injured in the collapse.
