Picturing the Past 140: Old Central High gymPosted Tuesday, January 3, 2012, at 12:27 PM
The old Central High gym, as it appeared in 1974. (T-G file photo)
A lot of memories of everything from ball games to dances still live in that gym, or at least in the minds of those who spent time in it. This view's from 1974.
Today that gym sits empty, slowly rotting away from non-use after a deal to fix it up a while back didn't work out. Next to the gym is the old high school building, meeting the same fate. Maybe someday something can be worked out to preserve our heritage.
