Chicago Stadium History

Built in 1929, the Chicago Stadium, also known as the "Madhouse on Madison," hosted boxing matches, hockey (the Blackhawks), basketball (the Bulls), music, political conventions, and all other types of events.

The building was demolished in 1995, and now the site serves as a parking lot for the more modern United Center.

Oh, what a beautiful parking lot. That's certainly an improvement! Just kidding, of course.
