Located in Wood River, IL outside of St. Louis, this is the second geodesic dome designed by Buckminster Fuller and built by the Union Tank Car Company after the success of the first Union Tank Car Dome in Baton Rouge, LA. Ownership of the dome has changed several times since it was completed in 1964, but as of 2011, it was still being used for rail car repair.
