Description:


The Davis Gumnasium is a single-story, high ceilinged and rectangular structure (108′ X 120′) that is constructed of rusticated and randomly laid native sandstone. Over the gym the roof is arched, although over the wings it is flat. Parapets are capped with pre-formed concrete slabs. Window openings have concrete sills and some of them have been filled with inserts. Addition of classroom facilities around the structure has pretty much destroyed the architectural integrity of the structure •
Construction of the Davis Gym provided jobs for destitute workers during the worst of the depression and provided a new dimension to the educational curriculum of the district. Architecturally it is notable for its scale especially, but also its style, materials and workmanship.
