Lloyd E. Scott Gym
Backstory and Context
Lloyd E. Scott Gym was built in 1970, and is the largest high school gym in the world. Its original capacity was listed at 8,110, and has since been expanded to 8,228. It was not even the largest gym in the state of Indiana at the time of its construction, but a recent recount revealed it to hold more than New Castle High Schools gym. The New Castle gym had long boasted to be the largest high school gym in the world, but temporary seating was often used whereas the seating in Lloyd E. Scott Gym is permanent. The Lloyd E. Scott Gym is used as a host site for sectional and regional games in the famous Indiana boys high school basketball tournament.
