  • What’s better than being kid and having summer vacation? – Nothing, except giving the parents their own vacation as well.

    Since 2009, the Basketball Heritage Project, Inc. (BHP has worked to preserve and promote the rich basketball heritage of Crawfordsville and Montgomery County. In the 1890’s, Crawfordsville was one of the first places where basketball was played soon after its invention by James Naismith. From that beginning, Hoosier hysteria blossomed and continues to bloom every winter.

    This summer, BHP will again be sponsoring student athletes from Crawfordsville, Southmont Junior-High and Northridge middle schools so that they can attend basketball camp. Playing basketball teaches children the value of teamwork, striving toward a common goal and preserving a piece of local history.

    BHP is a locally-based non-profit corporation that depends on donations to continue its community outreach through supporting activities like sending local students to basketball camp. Please visit our BHP website at If you would like to help, please send donations to Basketball Heritage Project, Inc., P.O. Box 349, Crawfordsville, IN 47933.
