Description

The Works Progress Administration built the Glouster Stadium for Trimble High School in 1940.

According to the Athens Messenger, as of August 2017, the Glouster Stadium was deemed structurally unsafe and closed. The future of the stadium is uncertain, but the Trimble Facilities Improvement Committee is exploring fundraising efforts in an attempt to retrofit and save the structure.
