the road to rivet

Every town along our trail is a potential gift.  Take Haubstadt & Owensville, two burgs separated by twelve miles of southwestern Indiana.  The gift?  Residents who welcome strangers and unlock doors to one of their most valued treasures - their old, well cared for high school gym.  Although full of memories (exhibited & not) these two gyms are living on through throw-back games, weekly basketball and volleyball leagues and youth camps.  And at Owensville, the first sunken gym built in Indiana (1950) & the home of the first glass backboards, we discovered the architect who pioneered this design and would go on to build New Castle's fieldhouse.  Gifts scattered all along the way.  CGS.
