Amphidrome

The Amphidrome was an arena in the town of Houghton, Michigan.

It was built in 1902 specifically for the Portage Lakes professional team, who played their first game there on December 30,1902.

The arena would serve as the home for the then Michigan College of Mines (Michigan Tech), Portage Lake's Senior Hockey team, Houghton High School, and Hancock High School.

It was destroyed by fire on January 9,1927 and was replaced that year by a new Amphidrome, later renamed James R. Dee Stadium in 1943.
