Eatonville High School has always had a great gym. Back in 1915 the Eatonville had a gym that was second to none.

You could find:
• An inside track around the balcony seats
• A boxing ring
• A swimming pool — 36′ by 18′
• All the latest equipment — rings, climbing ropes and more.

In the 2009, Eatonville remodeled the high school and the gym got another facelift.

Here are just a few “then” and “now” shots.

    Best of two gyms! I played basketball in the old gym and when I was in the 8th grade (1962) played in the new one before there were bleachers put in. In high school played all four years, class of 1966. My best memories of playing basketball at EHS was that practically the whole town would come out to watch us. It was quite an inspiration for us. This is a great web site Diane, brings back old memories!!
