Cairo High School/ Grant District High School Sports and Gymnasium
This is one of the last known photos of the CHS Gym. It collapsed from neglect in (circa 2010?). A large cast metal sign spanned the top front of the building for decades proclaiming "19 gymnasium 21."
Ink pens made from the gym floor were made by Alan Haught (Dottie Cornell) This view is of the gym floor looking from the front entrance of the gym near the end of it's time. From the posts on either side to the outside wall were large step-like "bleachers." When the crowd stomped their feet the entire building became one massive drum that echoed all across town.
