When a ﬁre in May 2010 severely damaged a local historical landmark in St. Stephen, it also sparked old memories of the history of basketball in the community. St. Stephen is a basketball town and, over the years, pride in local coaches, players, and teams has become a part of the fabric of the community. Realizing what could be lost forever, concerned citizens rallied together to raise over 1 million dollars to purchase the building which houses the court. Now, with the building secured, the community is setting out to create a destination attraction for basketball fans and other tourists alike.
