Sadly, this historic stadium, also listed in the National Register of Historic Places, was destroyed in a fire on June 29, 2015 by some pre-teen boys. The cause was arson. The Eugene School District which owned the stadium, had just approved the sale of the stadium to a local civic group for $4.1 million in April of that year.
