Beverly Hills High School Gym
While the main buildings of Beverly Hills High School were built in 1927, the unique “Swim Gym” was designed by Stiles O. Clements and built by the WPA in 1939. The gym, now known as the Konheim Athletic Building, contains a basketball court that can be opened to access a 25-yard swimming pool below. The gym has appeared in films such as It’s a Wonderful Life and Clueless.
