ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (AP) - Officials touting a High School Basketball Hall of Fame in central Kentucky say work on the first phase of the project could begin as early as next year.
Mike Pollio, who is leading a fundraising effort, told The News-Enterprise that the project planned for downtown Elizabethtown has attracted $350,000 in less than four months. Another $750,000 in requests is pending.
Pollio says if fundraising keeps meeting its goal of raising $100,000 a month, construction could begin in late 2014. He said at least $1 million is needed before construction can start.
The hall is envisioned a place where people can learn about how high school basketball has evolved through the years.
