Date of Work

1909

Description

The Women's Gymnasium, designed by architect Joseph B. De Remer, has the word "gymnasium" across the entrance door. The Cornerstone reads: "1907." Several trees surround the building and behind it are Great Northern Railroad Cars. UND built the gymnasium to provide an armory and drill hall, a gymnasium for men and women, and a University Assembly Hall. With the completion of the Armory (1919), the regular work of the Military Department and men's athletics were removed and it was then primarily a woman's gymnasium.
