Feel the History

The Reitz Bowl
A West Side Treasure since 1921
 


The Reitz Bowl has evolved into much more than just a high school football stadium over the decades and has become a symbol to the west side of Evansville. Jon Carl, History Teacher at F. J. Reitz High School, recalls the history of the Reitz Bowl.

Designed by local Evansville architects, construction of the Reitz Bowl began in 1921 & was completed before the 1922 football season, costing $52,964 (approximately $30,000 over original estimates). The Reitz Bowl has seen several renovations & additions over the years, many of which were funded or donated by the West Side Nut Club.
