Chandler High School Gymnasium and Improvements – Chandler AZ

Description

CUSD: “In 1939, a new gymnasium was constructed on the high school campus, immediately southwest of the old gymnasium. Built at a cost of $70,000, the new structure had a cafeteria at the rear, with dressing rooms for boys and girls in the basement. An April 13, 1939 article in the Chandler Arizonan touted the new building as “one of the finest in Arizona … as modern as up-to-date builders and equipment furnishers can make it.” The work was funded by a $33,000 bond issue as well as a $27,000 federal grant from the Public Works Administration. The original gymnasium was remodeled to create woodworking and agricultural shops. The old building was “refinished” on the outside to conform to the main building and new gymnasium.”
