Welcome to the small little community of Wingate Indiana. Formally called Pleasant Hill, Wingate is a town in coal Creek Township and Monterey County and home to less than 500 residents. Originally platted back in 1832, citizens renamed the town to Wingate in honor of the prominent town person John C Wingate.
Wingate is known for its sports heritage and signage on the north and south ends of town along state Route 25 state that the Wingate basketball team was the first to win back to back championships in 1913 and 1914. Wingate also has produced for Indiana basketball Hall of Fame inductees, Jesse Wood, Lee Thorn, Alonzo Goldsberry, and Homer Stonebraker. Wingate was also the side of the first electric basketball scoreboard invented in 1935. While small, Wingate certainly holds onto its claims to fame.
