Original Construction

Referendum: Passed April 3, 1956 (11,575 to 4,893), while community leaders continued debate over a site.

Site: In late April 1956, the Packers hired an engineering company to study proposed locations. The company in July 1956 recommended the corner of Highland (now Lombardi) Avenue and Ridge Road.

Land: City Council purchased farmland owned by Victor and Florence Vannieuwenhoven in August 1956 for $73,305.

Contract: Awarded early in 1957, with groundbreaking as soon as weather permitted.

Time: No longer than nine months, in time for '57 opener.

Cost: $960,000 in municipal bonds; the Packer Corporation paid $634,700 in interest and principal.
