Just outside of this unique community is an abandoned place called The Domes. In 1982 buildings were designed in a dome shape as a way to keep costs low and for protection from temperature changes. When they were completed an electronic manufacturer was supposed to move in. It only took six weeks to build the structure, which is concrete poured over a steel skeleton and inflated balloons. However, the company closed down and never moved in, leaving the buildings abandoned. The buildings are still vacant and draw many visitors because they are UFO shaped, which have led to all kinds of stories of hauntings.
