Amazingly, the dome is still standing. Do domes stand? The dome was built in 1958 and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.
Today, the Gold Dome is an event and cultural center, offering free tours and hosting both public and private parties. The Gold Dome will also lease its 50 person board room, the lower level Red Room, and even the elegant lobby space for community use. The building is home to two art galleries, the Grapevine Gallery and Fletcher Christian Vines Gallery which occupies the former bank vault. Additional space has been converted into private offices. In 2007, plans were confirmed for the opening of a restaurant and lounge in the Dome.
