On April 15, 2004 The Wichita Eagle reported, "The Islamic Society of Wichita plans to hold a 'raising the dome' ceremony at 1:30 p.m. Friday at the Muslim Community Center, 6655 E. 34th St. North. The event is designed to watch the placement of a 26-foot-wide dome on a new mosque. The mosque will cost about $1.5 million. If weather permits, the mosque will be ready for use by the start of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan in mid-October, leaders said, and will be completed sometime next year."
