The mall opened September 3, 1970, and the original anchor stores included Sears and F.W. Woolworth, and JCPenney opening in April 1971.
In 1985, the mall went under an expansion with the addition of an Elder- Beerman Department Store.
The mall was hit hard by the recession as any store or mall with the lost of Waldenbooks, Sam Goody, followed by Sears closing in 2012.
In 2013, mall renovations included the former Sears store to be divided and Hobby Lobby would open in the mall and the current MC Sports location would expand.
Here are pictures of the mall from March 2013:
