In need of a place for local history

Posted: Sunday, December 15, 2013 12:00 am

So I walked into Thursday night’s council meeting in Loganville ready to hear more about the proposal to renovate the Rock Gym. A little disappointed to learn after the meeting that it was pulled from the agenda on a day earlier.

I think the Loganville officials have a great opportunity and I do believe wholeheartedly that something needs to be done to preserve the facility, which dates back to the time of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and the Works Progress Administration, a byproduct of the New Deal. It was dedicated by Eleanor Roosevelt, and with this much history it would sad to see its demise. It is already disheartening to see it have degraded to the state it was in a few years ago prior to recent work done once the city assumed control of the facility.
