The old YMCA, right before it was torn down. The current Y, at 4th and Cook has been open for 47 years.
Anyone have a picture of St. John’s Hospital School of Nursing Building. Was torn down,but there has to be some photyos somewhere. Thanks
wonderful Pictures.Like That!
The Sky Ranch on Friday & Saturday, was the teen hangout..located in the lower right part of the picture…great times…
It’s a shame that so much space that could be used for something is just gone… and such a beautiful building too!
When I went to Sky Ranch it was in the basement of the YWCA at 5th and Jackson !
I remember swimming in the Y pool. Loud echo from all of the yelling & splashing. Then I seem to remember a room upstairs that was decorated like a ship or boat with round windows like portholes and other nautical stuff. Anyone else remember that?
I sure do. We spent Saturday mornings in the 50’s/early 60’s there for Gym, Swim, and Handicraft.
We had like a little clubroom with a nautical-theme area called Davey Jones’ Locker, where they had a t.v.
We used to also play a game called Nok-Hockey, and bumper pool. The other thing I remember is buying Fire Sticks candy out of the machine there.
Wasn’t the Public Library very close to there, as well?
I also remember the running track that over looked the basketball court.
I also remember swimming in the YMCA pool. During my era there we were required to swim nude. I never understood why and wondered if that was a nation-wide YJCA requirement.
Iremember they had dances at DAVY JOHNS LOCKER in the basement
