Notes
Survey number HABS WY-155
Building/structure dates: 1939 initial construction
National Register Number: 69000191
Significance: The Gymnasium was constructed in 1939-1940 to provide recreational facilities for troops stationed at Fort F.E. Warren. Designed by the army and built jointly by the Public Works and Work Projects administrations, it typifies the degree of cooperation between military and relief agencies during the Great Depression. The Gymnasium has formed an integral part of the fort's day-to-day operation, and its prominent position along the fort's main thoroughfare distinguishes it as a landmark in the historic district. With its red brick walls, white trim, and symmetrical facade with classical revival main entrance, the Gymnasium typifies the modified Colonial Revival architectural style widely used by the Army's Quartermaster General's office.
