I remember a place that had a gold dome top building I'm thinking it was somewhere off HY 32 between Ste Gen and Farmington? or between Farmington and Fredericktown? This was around 1980, it was a temple or shrine type building, it had a gated entrance. As kids we went there one night to sneak in to check it out and the groundskeeper/guard whatever he was told us we had to leave almost before our feet hit the ground inside the gate. To tell you exactly where the place is or if the dome building even still exists would be impossible to say now as that's been about 30 years ago and I was just along for the ride. After that guy scared the crap out of us telling us we were tresspassing I didn't want to go back.

Farmer John do you think you could give me directions how to get there? Would love to get a picture of it. I heard of it from a friend who passed away and have been intrigued by it. He thought it was built for the Dahli Lama. Would love to know more about it.

The building your are talking about is near Coffman. Some call it a castle or "the Coffman Mansion". It is not the "Nation's Plantation" on WW. The huge rock building grounds was being leased by a university, but the building was not. I do know the gravel road to the building and grounds has security camera's and several speed bump's to not allow a quick get away. In the 1980's, helicopters would deliver the guest. I'm not sure what for. Any way, it is near hwy B and WW. Warning. The Sheriff's Department watches the place close or even worse, the grounds keeper. Good luck!

The university also leases part of the building where the dome is or atleast they did a few years back ha something to do with plants and the green house effect so I ha read but yea it is located in Coffman although when I was there I didn't see speed bumps or security cameras I did some checking around and some research told me that several years back that this was a place where the crazes went but I was told it was a check yourself in check yourself out thing thats where the name yome dome came from I also found out that the sheriff dept used part of this building to stock pile confiscated items and maybe that's where the security cameras and the police patrolling the area but like I said when I was there I didnt see any of this I couldn't really give directions to it as it been awhile since I was there but I do know it is out in Coffman around one of the wineries past their grape fields is about all I can remember I don't know the roads or anything! But this is not to be confused with the "castle" in minnith they are 2 totally different places as far as the yome dome goes there is pictures of it on the Internet if u really dig because I found them on there while I was doing research you just have to dig! I was told you could access the yome dome by driving down coldwater creek road the road is on your right hand side if ur headed out t road from perryville it's quite a ways out there I been down that road but some extremely weird creepy a$$ stuff happene so we turned the hell around hope this helps good luck!

Ok guys curiosity got the best of me so I called a friend who was born and raised in coffman/ avon area. he Told me he himself had been in it years ago the university does lease it as of right now it was an old meditation center he said something about the dahli llama but he said they were monks who always wore hoods white robes they were all bald he said they rented out the cubicles to people to meditate it wasn't religion sensitive and that the Satan worshiper eventually took it over de said it was a very neat and interesting place he gave me a link and I will share it with all of you but he told me that not all the stuff on thi site is true it does have slot of facts but alot of stuff is from thrill seeking ghost adventures there are no rooms or buildings with shackles an chains in them r any crazy stuff like that this was a meditation house and a natural herb growing facility upon clicking on the link there are also a few pictures on here of the building who knows type in the full name of the meditation facility into google and you just might dig up more!! He also told me that helicopters did fly VIP people in this place and they did let anyone in the building that wanted to come in but they were not aloud in the cubicles they all walked in a single file line behind one another with heads bowed and hands together in prayer position and he said they were nice people but the religion was a "cult" either way you look at it and it was a meditation hotel to top it all off hope this helps

He also told me that this place shut down because of the rev. Jim jones an the guyanna tragedy

Anyways do your own digging and good luck I'm glad I could help y'all
