November 2005: the cupolas resting in the storage yard of the City Museum.

The original cupolas were severely deteriorated, having sat exposed to the elements for over a decade after their copper cladding was stripped off by thieves. They now reside at the City Museum; one has been incorporated into MonstroCity.

September 2006: one of the cupolas incorporated into MonstoCity, alongside a cupola from the demolished wings of the State Hospital.
