Box Elder School GymnasiumNational Archives Record Group 135-SAR
“In Brigham City, the PWA sponsored another public building, the Box Elder High School Gymnasium. This was a more ambitious project, one of twenty Utah school gymnasiums built during the 1930s. Of red brick, the building cost $106,000. Its construction provided work not just for Brigham City laborers but for the Joseph Nelson architectural firm, an Idaho general contractor, a city building inspector, a Utah plumbing/heating/ventilating contractor, and a roofing/sheet metal specialist.
The design, acceptable for the time, provided for two gyms: a 7,000-square-foot boys’ gym with seating for 1,000 and a girls’ gym one-fourth that size. There was also a tiled swimming pool, locker rooms, classrooms, and a handball court.”
