Early on Eatonville was more about basketball and baseball than football. The gym is the building on the right. The first basket ball team was 1912.

This picture was probably taken in the early 1940s and Eatonville. Eighty years later and the grand stand looks pretty much the same.

  1. Hi Diane,

    The Grandstand was built in 1938. The tennis courts across the way were also completed that same year. They both look new in this photo.
