Once upon a time

Old school - Sandy Williams' book, "Images of America ­ Hinsdale," includes a photo of the high school gymnasium, which was built in 1921 on Washington Street north of the high school. "Spectator seating for 500 was accommodated on a second-floor gallery that surrounded the court below. Beneath the stands, on the first floor, were the locker rooms and storage. The building was razed in 1976 along with the adjacent school to make room for the current Hinsdale Middle School." That "current middle school" was again torn down to make room for the new current middle school, which opened in January 2019.
