Paragon’s Administration Building – an original from 1905

The Paragon Park Administration Building was the only structure from 1905 still standing when the park closed in 1984. It was located in the rear corner of Paragon and housed the park management offices. Unfortunately, we ran out of time to get the building moved off the site. The newspaper clipping is from July 16, 1985, days after the bulldozer reduced the structure to a pile of rubble.

Remember this view?

Rounding the corner on George Washington Boulevard, Paragon’s Giant Coaster stretched out along the skyline to welcome Hull folks home and to give summertime visitors a peek at the fun awaiting them. Not sure whose image this is… would love to use it (or one like it) in the book.

Just a few of the many images of Paragon Park in our collection… putting them all up here might crash the site!
