Legend City closed its doors for the last time on Sunday, September 4, 1983. The following spring, the remaining rides, signs, buildings and fixtures went up for auction and the park was then razed to the ground. Before it disappeared forever, Jim Madden documented the park's final days in an extraordinary series of images. Photos courtesy of James Madden, all rights reserved.
