Goodness -- Coal Creek Twp - should have definitely added this one a LONG time ago, not in January 2015 but here it is. Many of us today remember the school there and I loved the old gym that looked kind of like a quanset hut. There are pictures of the old Cates school that existed for many years plus the one that was pre-lim to it and the gym p. 55 in the new History of Fountain County, Indiana 2013. Frances Woodrow Allen's article is very interesting with fun things mentioned like in 1941, a water system was put in with water fountain and rest rooms in 1951. That was the same year the gym was built. Many of my relatives went to school and lived in Cates.
