KNIGHTSTOWN, Ind. (WLFI) — A historic eastern Indiana gym that was featured in the 1986 basketball film "Hoosiers" is in need of repairs.

The Hoosier Gym is a rustic, 1920's era structure in Knightstown. It served as a functioning gym until the mid-1960's.

Now, it needs a new roof, brick repairs and new windows. It's used as a community center and serves 70,000 people annually.

Gym officials are exploring a grant from the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs.
