WAVELAND – The Waveland High School gymnasium, built with a WPA grant, has been a stalwart of the Waveland community since it open its doors in 1937. The historical gym, along with the newer elementary school built in the mid 1980s, will be auctioned to the highest bidder on Wednesday, Nov. 7 at 6:30 p.m. The auction will be held at the school property at 506 East Green Street in Waveland. Included in the auction will be the 8,400 sq. ft. gymnasium and the elementary school which includes 14 classrooms, library, commercial size kitchen and cafeteria among other amenities; a total of over 33,000 square feet.
The new elementary school, on the site of the old high school, was completed around 1986. Final classes said good-bye to the school in May of 2014. The entire complex has been vacant since. Brenda and Ralph Jones purchased the property from South Montgomery School Corporation in 2016.
Readers may remember that the Waveland gym, school and campus were the first choice as a location for the filming of the movie “Hoosiers.” Unfortunately, demolition of the high school had been set for the same time period and could not be changed. “Hoosiers” was ultimately filmed at the Knightstown gym.
Question of the Week:

The League of Women Voters typically has a debate or candidate forum each election. The Paper of Montgomery County has also sponsored a more traditional debate on occasion. This year, there was a report that some Republican Party candidates were not going to attend the League’s event that is slated for Thursday, although it now appears they will. The question this week is are local debates worthwhile?

Get a closer look at nature as a guide leads you on an educational walk along our Nature Trail. The trail is about a mile long loop in the Museum’s three acre woods making it feel very much like a wilderness experience in the middle of town. Nature Walks are the fourth Tuesday of every month April through October from 6-7 PM. A different topic is discussed and explored each month. Meet at the Nature Trail Entrance located at the south side of the Carriage house just off the parking lot. Fee: FREE
