Monticello Historical Society: Basketball team, 1910
Photo supplied by the Monticello Historical Society
Monticello's first basketball team, coached by Emil Krause, circa 1910. A source for the names of the players has not been located. The girls basketball team played in the ballroom of the Grand Central Hotel, so that is likely where the boys played also. A better auditorium wasn't available until 1918, when Karlen's Hall was completed. The photo was taken by Edyth Blum at the south end of the Staedtler Mill on Monticello's Main Street.
