SAVE THE FIELDHOUSE
WHY SAVE THE FIELDHOUSE?
The Nachand Fieldhouse, built in 1937, was the home to Jeffersonville High School Basketball until 1971. The Nachand Fieldhouse has played a vital role in not only the local community, but the entire state of Indiana.
At the time the fieldhouse was built, it was the largest fieldhouse in the state, second only to Hinkle Fieldhouse at Butler. Nachand Fieldhouse has witnessed thousands of events, meaningful to the young and old. From Basketball games, to league sports, concerts, or just hanging out with friends.
Many people over the years have called the Nachand Fieldhouse their home away for home. We believe the restoration and rebirth of the Fieldhouse can represent the possibilities of the future of this building.
