Fans Bring Chairs From Historic Astrodome Home

Updated: Tuesday, December 3 2013, 10:36 AM CST

Parts of Houston's Astrodome is now in the homes of fans.

Monday the seats, which were once a part of the 8th Wonder of the World, left with people who had pre-purchased them in November.

"It's a little unnerving to think that it all might be gone one day, so it's just something to hold onto from being a kid," said Joshua Baker.

People began lining up early Monday and some people had strong preferences on what numbers and colors of seats they were given.

"We want the color yellow because they’re the rarest of all the seats," Danny Thames said.

While some were excited to get their part of history home others remain disappointed.

Last month voters rejected a $217 million bond that would have turned the dome into an event center.  Now crews can be heard demolishing parts of the dome.
