Cotillion Ballroom
Wichita, KS
The Cotillion Ballroom was built in 1960 and has a 24-foot-tall dome. The building can hold 2,000 people. It continues to be used for concerts, dances, and stage shows. The neon sign shown in the first photo was replaced with a plastic and LED sign in 2007. I believe the sign installed on the poles in front of the building was part of the old sign.
