East Liverpool Area YMCA

History of the YMCA

Written by Catherine S. Vodrey


The old YMCA Building as it looked in 2010.

The Gym.


The Hi-Y battling the Key Club at their January basketball competition. Although the Key Club put up a fight the Hi-Y beat them with a final score 43 to 33. (1963 Keramos)

There were times when the YMCA and the High School had joint events such as this basketball game between the girls and boys.

The boys had to wear boxing gloves and fancy head gear to even out the competition.

The Pool.

This is one area we hope to get additional photographs of. While the pool would be empty since no longer in use we hope that the area is in good enough shape to spark memories of those who used that pool in days gone by.

We are always looking for additional photographs that anyone might like to donate or allow us to scan and post here. Such photographs would be returned after scanning.

Hyperlinking, or as it is also called framing, without permission is not permitted.
Legally speaking framing is still in a murky area of the law though there have been court cases in which framing has been seen as violation of copyright law. Many cases that were taken to court ended up settling out-of-court with the one doing the framing agreeing to cease framing and to just use a regular link to the other site.
The East Liverpool Historical Society pays fees to keep their site online. A person framing the Society site is effectively presenting the entire East Liverpool Historical Society web site as his own site and doing it at no cost to himself, i.e. stealing the site.
The East Liverpool Historical Society reserves the right to charge such an individual a fee for the use of the Society’s material.
