Hillsborough High School Gymnasium – Tampa FL

Description

The Hillsborough High School was built in 1927 but soon thereafter the Great Depression caused a halt to construction of the gymnasium and the track. These were eventually built in 1936 by the Works Progress Administration under the supervision of Mr. E.H. Foxworth. This structure has come to be known by the students as the Barn due its architectural style.

Source notes

My source is the Hillsborough High School newspaper called the Red and Black. The February 28 1936 edition tells that the completion of the Gymnasium was only three months away.
