The Hoisington High School Stadium was built in 1937 as a Works Progress Administration (WPA) project. The stadium was constructed of native limestone quarried from the Ney farm north of Hoisington. It sits alongside K 4 Highway on the north side of Elton Brown Field at the rear of Hoisington High School. The perimeter walls are native stone that are stepped on the east and west sides and at the central entry on the north side.
Elton B. Brown was one of the top middle distance runners in the Midwest in the 1930s, a member of the 1934 U.S. Track Team that competed in Europe and a member of the 1936 U.S. Olympic Team in Germany. He began teaching Manual Arts and P.E. at Hoisington High School in 1949. “Brownie” also coached track, football and basketball. The Hoisington High School athletic field was named in his honor when he retired in 1975.
Hoisington High School and the football stadium were listed on the National Register of Historic Places on November 15, 2005.
