To provide a community center for the people of Knightstown to use, to hold meetings, events, athletic events, and other activities. To protect and preserve a one of a kind building that can never be replaced.
The Hoosier Gym Community Center Inc. was formed in 1984. The building was empty and at risk of being torn down. A few people decided to try to save the building. A movie company was looking for a gym to a film a 1950’s era movie and the townspeople got in touch with them. They came and looked at the gym, fell in love with it and the rest is history.. The 501C3 was formed to run the facility and make sure that it stayed a functional building. Today it hosts high school games, college teams, weddings, meetings, funerals, corporate retreats and much more. Organizations hold their meetings each month and the boy/girl scouts use the building as their home base.
